What Makes a Creole a Creole? Language Contact and Hybridity in a World Englishes Context
All world Englishes have somehow developed in contact with other languages but only some are classified as special linguistic categories, i.e. as Pidgins and Creoles. In this presentation, the contested concept of a Creole language and its exceptional status will be explored from a historical, epistemological and sociolinguistic perspective. After a more general review of potentially shared functions and characteristics of P/Cs around the world, we will also take an in-depth look at a specific real-life contact variety – Trinidadian English Creole – and explore its phonological, grammatical and sociolinguistic features in more detail.
