description

This textbook is a clear and concise introduction to the study of how new languages come into being. Starting with an overview of the field's basic concepts, it surveys the new languages that developed as a result of the European expansion to the Americas, Africa, Asia and the Pacific. Long misunderstood as "bad" versions of European languages, today such varieties as Jamaican Creole English, Haitian Creole French and New Guinea Pidgin are recognized as distinct languages in their own right.

Critique de chapters.indigo

John Holm studies how new languages come into being in this straightforward and concise introductory text. An Introduction to Pidgins and Creoles begins by surveying the field’s core concepts and examines new languages developing out of the European expansion to the Americas, Africa, Asia and the Pacific. Too often in the past, Pidgins and Creoles were misinterpreted as bad versions of European languages. Today, varieties such as Jamaican Creole English, Haitian Creole French and New Guinea Pidgin are regarded as unique languages in their own right.
