Creolization of Language and Culture is the first English edition of Robert Chaudenson's landmark reference text Des îles, 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 for a more sophisticated alternative which 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 important 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 extensivelyChaudenson, Robert is the author of 'Creolization of Language and Culture' with ISBN 9780415145923 and ISBN 0415145929.
