The Character of Pidgins

  • Mark Sebba
Chapter
Part of the Modern Linguistics Series book series

Abstract

Up until now I have discussed pidgins as though they formed an identifiable group with characteristics in common, but I have not shown why this should be so. This chapter will look at some of the features which typify pidgins, leading to remarkable similarities among pidgins widely separated in time and space.
