Book Information


Title: The Atlas and Survey of Pidgin and Creole Languages
Subtitle: Super Set: Four-volume Pack
Edited By: Susanne Michaelis
Philippe Maurer
Martin Haspelmath
Magnus Huber

Designed, edited, and written by the world's leading experts in the field, the three-volume Survey brings together over ninety leading experts to present concise accounts of the world's pidgin and creole languages. The division of its three volumes reflects the languages from which they originated. Each entry provides a linguistic and social history of the pidgin or creole in question and an analysis of their linguistic characteristics, and is accompanied by a location map and a bibliography. The project is the successor to the successful World Atlas of Language Structures and draws on the same linguistic, cartographic, and computing knowledge and skills of the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig. The Atlas presents full colour maps of the distribution among the pidgins and creoles of 130 structural linguistic features drawn from their phonology, syntax, morphology, and lexicons. In addition there are some maps with relevant sociolinguistic features. The three Survey volumes and the Atlas are available in one Super Pack, as well as individually.
