In this volume, second language (L2) acquisition researchers and creolists
engage in a dialogue, focusing on processes at work in L2 acquisition and
creole genesis. The volume opens with an overview of the relationship
between L2 acquisition and pidgins/creoles (Siegel). The first group of
papers addresses current language contact at a societal or an individual
level (Smith; Terrill and Dunn; Bruhn de Garavito and Atoche; Liceras et
al.; Müller). The second section focuses on processes characterizing
various stages of L2 acquisition and creole genesis: relexification and
transfer from the L1 and their role in the initial state (Sprouse;
Schwartz; Kouwenberg; Aboh; Ionin).

Chapters in the third section discuss processes involved in developing
grammars, namely, reanalysis and restructuring (Sánchez; Brousseau and
Nikiema; Steele and Brousseau). The final section concentrates on
fossilization and the end state (Cornips and Hulk; Montrul; Lardiere).
Between them, the chapters cover lexical, morphological, phonological,
semantic and syntactic properties of interlanguage grammars and creole
