Title: Pidgins and Creoles: An Introduction
Written By: Ishtla Singh
Description:

Pidgins and Creoles have always attracted a great deal of interest -
academic and otherwise - but in recent decades they have become
increasingly important as a field of linguistic inquiry. Placing pidgins
and creoles in the wider setting of linguistic theory, this book bridges
the gap between introductory material and primary material, revising
students' knowledge of the field as well as acquainting them with key areas
of debate in pidgin and creole studies. The author provides a carefully
balanced introduction to theoretical aspects of creolistics as well as an
even-handed discussion of influences on pidgins and creoles which is well
illustrated with rare examples of longer texts.
