Creoles, Revisited

Language Contact, Language Change, and Postcolonial Linguistics

Nicholas G. Faraclas (Redaktør) ; Sally J. Delgado (Redaktør)

The authors bring together archival sources to challenge dominant linguistic theory and practice and engage issues of power, positioning marginalized indigenous peoples as the center of, and vital agents in, these languages' formation and development.

Om boka

This innovative book contributes to a paradigm shift in the study of creole languages, forging new empirical frameworks for understanding language and culture in sociohistorical contact. The authors bring together archival sources to challenge dominant linguistic theory and practice and engage issues of power, positioning marginalized indigenous peoples as the center of, and vital agents in, these languages' formation and development. Students in language contact, pidgins and creoles, Caribbean studies, and postcolonial studies courses-and scholars across many disciplines-will benefit from this book and be convinced of the importance of understanding creoles and creolization.
