Abstract:

This volume presents a careful selection of fifteen articles presented at
the SPCL meetings in Atlanta, Boston and Hawai'i in 2003 and 2004. The
contributions reflect - from various perspectives and using different types
of data - on the interplay between structure and variation in contact
languages, both synchronically and diachronically. The contributors
consider a wide range of languages, including Surinamese creoles, Chinook
Jargon, Yiddish, AAVE, Haitian Creole, Afro-Hispanic and Afro-Portuguese
varieties, Nigerian Pidgin, Sri Lankan Malay, Papiamentu, and Bahamian
Creole English (Hackert). A need to question and test existing claims
regarding pidginization/creolization is evident in all contributions, and
the authors provide analyses for a variety of grammatical structures:
VO-ordering and affixation, agglutination, negation, TMAs, plural marking,
the copula, and serial verb constructions. The volume provides ample
evidence for the observation that pidgin/creole studies is today a mature
subfield of linguistics which is making important contributions to general
linguistic theory.
