Abstract:

This book reflects an ongoing shift in the study of contact languages:
After a period of history-free universalism, it directs the attention to
the individual historical circumstances under which the pidgin and creole
languages arose. The contributions deal with different areas of language
structure including phonology, morphology, and syntax, providing a wealth
of structural and sociohistorical data that any comprehensive theory of
contact languages will have to account for. Each of the papers provides a
thorough description of a structural phenomenon against the background of
the sociohistorical contact situation. The languages covered in the book
are: Guin├ę-Bissau Creole, Haitian Creole, Hawai'i Creole, Indo-Portuguese
creoles, Jamaican Creole, Lingua Franca, North American French, Mauritian
Creole, Santomense, Saramaccan, Seychelles Creole, Sranan, Surinamese
Maroon creoles, Vincentian Creole, and Zamboangue├▒o Chavacano.
