CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS 

The summer conference of the Society for Pidgin and Creole Linguistics
will be held August 14-17 2003 at the Imin International Conference

on creole literature (coordinator: Susanne M�hleisen, Frankfurt).

We invite contributions on various linguistic, sociolinguistic and
pragmatic aspects of creole use in all types of literary
texts. Possible topics include, but are not limited, to the following:

- Functions of creole in the literary text
- Orthography choices and standardization
- Authenticity versus abstraction in written creole representations
- Heteroglossia: variety and register in the narrative
- Dynamics of orality and literacy in creole literature
- Literary basilect and the creation of a literary creole
- Types of creole marking in the literary text: grammatical,
phonological and lexical features
- Loan words and other word formation strategies in creole literature
- Creole translations

Please send your abstract of approximately 200 words to the
coordinator no later than February 28, 2003:
Susanne M�hleisen (University of Frankfurt, Germany)
