Comparative Creole Syntax: Parallel Outlines of 18 Creole Grammars by John A. Holm, Peter L. Patrick



Comparative Creole Syntax is a detailed reference of grammar that uses the same analytical structure to cover a large number of Creole languages. This book contains comparative grammars of 18 Creole languages of the Americas, Africa, Southeast Asia, the Indian Ocean, and the Pacific, written by some of the field's leading scholars. There are separate chapters for each language. Each chapter includes a sociohistorical introduction as well as a detailed grammar that treats about 100 structural features. The descriptive framework is common to all chapters, with corresponding section numbers to allow easy cross-reference. This makes this book the ideal complement to all existing general works on Pidgins and Creoles and an essential reference work for all specialists and students concerned with these languages. The book as a whole provides the broadest structural comparison between Creole languages yet undertaken.
