Abstract:

In this volume, second language (L2) acquisition researchers and creolistsengage in a dialogue, focusing on processes at work in L2 acquisition andcreole genesis. The volume opens with an overview of the relationshipbetween L2 acquisition and pidgins/creoles (Siegel). The first group ofpapers addresses current language contact at a societal or an individuallevel (Smith; Terrill and Dunn; Bruhn de Garavito and Atoche; Liceras etal.; Müller). The second section focuses on processes characterizingvarious stages of L2 acquisition and creole genesis: relexification andtransfer from the L1 and their role in the initial state (Sprouse;Schwartz; Kouwenberg; Aboh; Ionin).

Chapters in the third section discuss processes involved in developinggrammars, namely, reanalysis and restructuring (Sánchez; Brousseau andNikiema; Steele and Brousseau). The final section concentrates onfossilization and the end state (Cornips and Hulk; Montrul; Lardiere).Between them, the chapters cover lexical, morphological, phonological,semantic and syntactic properties of interlanguage grammars and creolegrammars.
