Creolization of Language and Culture
Creolization of Language and Culture is the first English edition of Robert Chaudenson’s landmark reference Des оles, des hommes, des langues, which has also been fully revised.
Focusing on major French Creoles of the Indian Ocean and the Caribbean, Chaudenson argues against traditional accounts of creole genesis and for a more sophisticated alternative that takes full account of the peculiar linguistic and social factors at play in the European settlement colonies.
This is an accessible book which makes an inspiring contribution to the study of pidgin and creole language varieties, as well as to the development of contemporary European vernaculars outside Europe. Key features include:

•  Analysis of current debates on the development of creoles

•  Discussion of many aspects of creole cultures, including music, medicine, cuisine and folklore

•  Translation of all French sources, from which Chaudenson quotes extensively
