Until very recently, phonology and morphology have been neglected
areas in the study of creole languages. This collection of articles
presents intriguing data and new analyses from a wide range of creoles
that call into question traditional claims about the nature of the
phonological and morphological systems of these languages and give
crucial insights into one of the major questions of creole studies,
i.e. the question of how these languages and their grammars come
about. The volume is organized into 5 sections, each focusing on
particular aspects of the respective subsystems: Segments and
syllables; Stress, tone and intonation; Morphophonology; Derivational
morphology; Inflection.
