Pidgins and Creoles
Current Trends and Prospects
David DeCamp and Ian F. Hancock, Editors

A collection of work on pidgins and creoles that includes discussions of the English-derived creole of San Andres Island and the French-derived creole of Cayenne, the theoretical contributions of creolistics to general linguistic theory, decreolization, generative phonological treatment of a hypothesized English-derived proto-creole, and the little-known Shelta language.
