Subject: New Internet Archive: Research Papers on Pidgins and Creoles

Dear colleagues, 

we are happy to announce the opening of a new internet resource, 
specialized in pidgin and creole languages, the 



The Pidgins and Creoles Archive (PCA) is a distribution point for 
research papers on Pidgins and Creoles hosted by the University of 
Siegen, Germany, managed by Ingo Plag and Sabine Lappe. 

PCA aims at facilitating research in Pidgin and Creole languages. 
Posting in PCA is open to all who wish to disseminate their work 
on Pidgins, Creoles, and other contact languages. Papers in the 
Archive are unedited, unreviewed, unsolicited, and self-selected.

You can upload your own papers and download other people's 
papers. Uploading and downloading procedures are automated and 
require only a few mouseclicks. 

Due to its nascent status, the archive currently holds only a few 
papers, but we hope that the number of available papers will 
increase shortly. 

For more information visit PCA ( ) 
or contact the PCA-managers 

Ingo Plag ( or
Sabine Lappe ( 

We welcome comments and suggestions.

Best Regards, 

Ingo Plag
