Abstract:

Creole languages have in recent years become a valuable source of data for
current theories of syntax and theories of child/adult language acquisition.
However, grammars of these languages, particularly those couched within
theoretical frameworks of one kind of another, are few and far between.

This book contributes directly to creole linguistics by providing a detailed
study of different aspects of the syntax of Mauritian creole within the
theoretical framework of Principles and Parameters (Chomsky, 1981) and
Minimalism (1995). It gives the reader a detailed account of the structure of
this language and insight into the nature of creole languages, with
implications for current cartographic and minimalist thinking on the structure
and derivation of phrases and clauses. It will appeal to researchers of
grammar and syntax, language acquisition, contact linguistics and
sociolinguistics.

“Anand Syea's book, the result of over twenty years of research, has
everything one could wish for: abundant and reliable examples, a firm but
accessible theoretical foundation, a transparent structure and line of
argumentation.” – Pieter Muysken, Professor, Department of Linguistics,
Radboud University Nijmegen, The Netherlands
