Summary

Creolization of Language and Culture is the first English edition of Robert Chaudenson's landmark text Des îles, des hommes, des langues, which has also been fully revised. With reference to the main varieties of creole French, Chaudenson argues against the traditional account of creole genesis for a more sophisticated paradigm which takes full account of the peculiar linguistic and social factors at play in colonial societies. 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 languages outside Europe. Key features include:

  • Analysis of current debates on the development of creoles
  • Discussion of many aspects of human culture including music, medicine, cooking, magic and folklore
  • Translation of all French sources from which Chaudenson quotes extensively
