Abstract:

Based on current data, the book provides a detailed sociolinguistic and
structural description of Cameroon Creole English, with a special focus on
aspects that are often used in creolistic literature as putative defining
features of bona fide prototypical creoles. It is the first comprehensive
research monograph on the language that describes and situates its
sociolinguistic and structural aspects within the context of current
creolistic debate and answers the following unanswered questions: How is the
evolutionary trajectory of the language and which theory of pidgins and
creoles genesis best accounts for its origin and development? What is its
current sociolinguistic status? Is the language a pidgin or a creole? What is
the typological distance between the language and its main lexifier? What is
its relationship with the other West African contact languages and other
creole languages? In spite of the controversy that characterizes the field of
creolistics regarding the defining characteristics of pidgins and creoles, the
book suggests, for instance, that, if the different routes to creolization are
recognized, it will be much easier to come up with putative characteristics
that define the developmental status of any contact language, as is the case
with Cameroon Creole English.
