CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS

The summer conference of the Society for Pidgin and Creole Linguistics
will be held August 14-17 2003 at the Imin International Conference

on creole literature (coordinator: Susanne Mühleisen, Frankfurt).

We invite contributions on various linguistic, sociolinguistic and
pragmatic aspects of creole use in all types of literary
texts. Possible topics include, but are not limited, to the following:

- Functions of creole in the literary text
- Orthography choices and standardization
- Authenticity versus abstraction in written creole representations
- Heteroglossia: variety and register in the narrative
- Dynamics of orality and literacy in creole literature
- Literary basilect and the creation of a literary creole
- Types of creole marking in the literary text: grammatical,
phonological and lexical features
- Loan words and other word formation strategies in creole literature
- Creole translations

Please send your abstract of approximately 200 words to the
coordinator no later than February 28, 2003:
Susanne Mühleisen (University of Frankfurt, Germany)
