about this item

This new four volume collection, Pidgins and Creoles, will showcase the major areas of research and their achievements in this multidisciplinary field. The collection will include both works that represent the status quo as well as those that are controversial in nature but which have nevertheless functioned as major catalysts for the production of knowledge. An important focus of the volumes will be to critically assess existing models, truths, research agendas and methodological frameworks in the research on these languages. While the bulk of research to date has principally investigated so-called English-lexified creoles, the volumes will also draw on work carried out on the range of such languages, crucially including not just creoles but also pidgins.
