We are happy to announce the release of Atlas of Pidgin and Creole Language Structures (APiCS) Online, the freely available online version of the Atlas of Pidgin and Creole Language Structures:

http://apics-online.info/

The Atlas of Pidgin and Creole Language Structures, edited by Susanne Maria Michaelis, Philippe Maurer, Martin Haspelmath, and Magnus Huber, and published by Oxford University Press, shows the distribution of 130 structural features in 76 pidgin, creole and other mixed languages. It was inspired by WALS (the World Atlas of Language Structures), and 48 of the features are the same in both atlases, allowing comparison of contact languages with the world’s languages. Datasets on the 76 languages were contributed by language experts on the basis of a detailed questionnaire, and checked thoroughly for consistency by the editors.

APiCS Online also contains references for each datapoint, as well as a large number of fully glossed examples, often from naturally occurring texts. There is also additional information on phonological segments and sociolinguistic features (the APiCS book in addition contains text chapters for each of the 130 features, written by the editors, as in WALS. These text chapters are not available online, at least not yet).

The APiCS Online application was developed by Robert Forkel as part of the CLLD project (http://clld.org/), and published by the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, Leipzig.
