Starting in 1498, contact between Ibero-Romance and Asian languages has taken
place along a vast stretch of the coastlines of continental and insular Asia,
producing a string of contact varieties which are among the least visible in
the field of Creole Studies. This volume, the first one dedicated to the
Portuguese- and Spanish-lexified creoles of Asia, brings together comparative
studies on various issues across the Ibero-Asian creoles and beyond, by
specialists in these languages. This type of cross-linguistic analysis allows
progress on many fronts, including the reconstruction of past stages of the
languages, the explanation of observed similarities and differences, the
identification and consolidation of typological/taxonomic clusters, or the
assessment of the linguistic effects of different contact equations. The
volume provides a timely window onto aspects of current research on the
Ibero-Asian creoles, including unsettled debates and ways in which their study
can contribute to advance several areas of linguistic enquiry.
