  • Ibero-Asian Creolesby Hugo C. Cardoso; Alan N. Baxter; Mário Pinharanda Nunes

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2012; US$ 158.00

    Mindanao Chabacano owes many of its features (including over 10% of its basic and more of its non-basic lexicon) to the influence of Philippine languages, and some of its typological features, such as the basic VSO constituent order, typify Philippine languages but atypical of Ibero-Asian creoles as a whole. Its sizeable component of basic Philippine-derived... more...
