Call Deadline: 30-Apr-2010
This conference has three goals: (i) To discuss some results from database of
the APiCS (Atlas of Pidgin and Creole Language Structures) project in advance of
publication (scheduled for 2011/2012), (ii) to present this project to
interested linguists who are not participants of the project, and (iii) more
generally, to discuss the properties of creole and pidgin languages against a
Call for Papers
We invite one-page abstracts for 30-minute papers on the structural properties
of pidgin, creole and mixed languages, seen against the background of world-wide
linguistic diversity. Typology has shown an increasing interest in language
contact and areal effects (see, e.g., WALS.info), so that creole and pidgin
linguistics now finds it easier to make use of typological findings.
