Are there common specific patterns in the Tense-Mood-Aspect systems of
Creoles? Do Creoles constitute a structural type of language? This
in-depth synchronic description of the Tense-Mood-Aspect system of
contemporary Hawai'i Creole English, is a language-internal analysis
based on extensive first-hand data, both written and spoken. The
language variety has been used as a basis for major linguistic
hypotheses - a strength of this book is the use of a
language-independent typological framework, placing the system in a
cross-linguistic perspective.
