    De Gruyter Mouton 2003; US$ 196.00

    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... more...

  • A Grammar of Saramaccan Creoleby John McWhorter; Jeff Good

    De Gruyter 2012; US$ 210.00

    Saramaccan has been central to various debates regarding the origin and nature of creole languages. Being the most removed of all English-based creoles from European language structure in terms of phonology, morphology and syntax, it has been seen as one of the most extreme instantiations of the creolization process. This is the first full-length description... more...

    L.L. Zamenhof (1859?1917), vor allem als Erfinder der internationalen Plansprache Esperanto in die Annalen eingegangen, ist weniger bekannt als Theoretiker der ?jüdischen Frage?.

  • Language Issues in Saint Vincent and the Grenadinesby Paula Prescod

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2015; US$ 143.00

    Languages of the Caribbean are fascinating and have been studied extensively.

    This is the first major study of any Chapakuran language and makes an important contribution to linguistic theory.
