Issues in English Creoles: Papers from the 1975 Hawaii Conference
Richard R. Day
John Benjamins Publishing, Jan 1, 1980 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 185 pages
The purpose of this volume is to make more accessible, for the use of researchers and students in the field of pidgins and creoles, presentations of the third International Conference on Pidgins and Creoles in Honolulu, 1975, dealing with English-based creoles. Aside from their documentary value, the ten papers of this volume are of interest for several reasons: they contain interesting data and observations on the languages themselves, in particular Trinidadian Creole, Guyanese Creole, St. Kitts Creole, and Bahamian English. Additionally, the contributions are significant for the insights they have into the importance of variation, a topic which must be confronted by those who investigate pidgins and creoles. Apart from Bickerton s paper dealing with universals, the papers are presented according to the geographic area where the linguistic systems are used.
