Summary "The comparatively recent origins of pidgins and creoles provide them with a special place in linguistic theory. Debates about the origin and character of these languages have informed broader discussions within grammatical theory, historical linguistics, and sociolinguistics. The Handbook of Pidgin and Creole Studies tackles these cross-linguistic questions that animate pidgin and creole studies."--Provided by the publisher.
