Creole language structure between substrates and superstrates
Leipzig (Germany), 3-5 June 2005
Philip Baker (University of Westminster/Sri Lanka)
Claire Lefebvre (Université du Québec à Montréal)
Ingo Plag (University of Siegen)
Papers presented at this conference will assess the relative importance of
substrate vs. superstrate vs. second-language-universals influence in the
creation of a creole language. Particularly relevant would be contributions
that compare entire (sub)systems of creoles with their substrate(s) and
superstrate(s), so that the nature and degree of the language mixture can
be approached in a more systematic way.
One goal of the conference will be to situate creole languages within a
typology of contact-induced language change. Therefore not only creoles,
but also pidgins and other contact languages can be discussed.
Papers are welcome which present data and analyses from all areas of
language structure: lexical semantics, phonology, morphology, syntax and
discourse. Any theoretical framework is welcome, as long as the paper also
makes an empirical contribution.
