Contact languages : a comprehensive guide( )

This volume deals with several types of contact languages: pidgins, creoles, mixed languages, and multi-ethnolects. it also approaches contact languages from two perspectives: an historical linguistic perspective, more specifically from a viewpoint of genealogical linguistics, language descent and linguistic family tree models; and a sociolinguistic perspective, identifying specific social contexts in which contact languages emerge.

11 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1,335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The interest in Romani, the language of the Roma or "Gypsies", has grown considerably in recent years.

The bibliography contains over 2500 titles in more than thirty lang
The mixed language debate : theoretical and empirical advances( )

18 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in English and held by 642 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mixed Languages are speech varieties that arise in bilingual settings, often as markers of ethnic separateness. They combine structures inherited from different parent languages, often resulting in odd and unique splits that present a challenge to theories of contact-induced change as well as genetic classification. This collection of articles is devoted to the theoretical and empirical controversies that surround the study of Mixed Languages. Issues include definitions and prototypes, similarities and differences to other contact languages such as pidgins and creoles, the role of codeswitchin

Creole studies : phylogenetic approaches by Peter Bakker( Book )

8 editions published in 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book launches a new approach to creole studies founded on phylogenetic network analysis. Phylogenetic approaches offer new visualisation techniques and insights into the relationships between creoles and non-creoles, creoles and other contact varieties, and between creoles and lexifier languages. With evidence from creole languages in Africa, Asia, the Americas, and the Pacific, the book provides new perspectives on creole typology, cross-creole comparisons, and creole semantics. The book offers an introduction for newcomers to the fields of creole studies and phylogenetic analysis. Using these methods to analyse a variety of linguistic features, both structural and semantic, the book then turns to explore old and new questions and problems in creole studies. Original case studies explore the differences and similarities between creoles, and propose solutions to the problems of how to classify creoles and how they formed and developed. The book provides a fascinating glimpse into the unity and heterogeneity of creoles and the areal influences on their development. It also provides metalinguistic discussions of the "creole" concept from different perspectives. Finally, the book reflects critically on the findings and methods, and sets new agendas for future studies. 'Creole Studies' has been written for a broad readership of scholars and students in the fields of contact linguistics, biolinguistics, sociolinguistics, language typology, and symantics
