Abstract:

This book is a 'must read' for those who are looking for fresh perspectiveson the process of creolization of language. Focusing on peoples whoseagency has too often been rendered invisible in colonial and neo-colonialhistory and on voices which have too often been silenced in linguisticaccounts of creole genesis, this volume considers socio-historical andlinguistic evidence that attests to the important roles played in theemergence of the Atlantic and Pacific Creoles by marginalized populations,such as women and people of non-European descent. In this work, the authorsamass and critically analyze a wealth of compelling data not only fromphonology, morpho-syntax, pragmatics, and descriptive, theoretical, andapplied linguistics, but also from history, economics, political science,sociology, anthropology, and critical theory to demonstrate howenterprising women, rebellious slaves, insubordinate sailors, and a host ofother renegades and maroons had a major impact on the creolized societies,cultures, and languages of the colonial era Atlantic and Pacific.
