View all copies of this ISBN edition:
 
 

The focus of this study is upon those pidgins and creoles which are English based and which have arisen since the fifteenth century. The book examines the widespread nature of the pidgin/creole phenomenon and evaluates the current definitions of the terms and the theories which have been advanced to account for their existence. The author considers the potential of pidgins and creoles as literary media and as vehicles for education. She looks at the sociological and psychological implications of using pidgins and creoles in the classroom and examines the position of American `Black English' and `London Jamaican' in the pidgin/creole continuum.

Loreto Todd is Senior Lecturer in English at the University of Leeds.

Review:

"It may well accomplish the dream of all writers of such handbooks: convince the beginner that he should learn at least one new language and devote himself to the field in the area." -- Modern Language Review

"This book is a marvelous feat of culling major issues and synthesizing complex arguments. It is a boon to those of us working in the field." -- Journal of Linguistics

"This slender but meaty volume is a good, solid and current introduction to the field of pidgin and creole languages." -- Language in Society

"Todd offers a thought-provoking and extended guide to the issues." -- International Review of Applied Linguistics in Language Teaching
