#4350: Morphology in Creole Genesis (fwd)
From: Michel DeGraff <degraff@MIT.EDU>
The following paper is available for downloading and circulating:
"Morphology in Creole genesis: A prolegomenon"
To appear in: Michael Kenstowicz, ed.,
_Ken Hale: A Life in Language_
Cambridge MASS.: MIT Press
The paper evaluates widely believed received notions about Creole
morphology. These notions span the entire course of Creole studies and a
variety of theoretical approaches. The paper also revisits some of the
historical foundations of Creole studies and their relationships to
contemporary sociological concerns in, and about, Creole communities.
