Journal of Pidgin and Creole Languages

JPCL at a Glance

The mission of the Journal of Pidgin and Creole Languages is to provide a forum for the scholarly study of pidgins, creoles, and other contact languages, from multi-disciplinary perspectives. We place special emphasis on current research devoted to empiricaldescription, theoretical issues, and the broader implications of the study of pidgins, creoles, and other contact languages for theories of acquisition and change, and for linguistic theory in general. We also encourage contributions that explore the applicationof linguistic research to language planning, education, and social reform, as well as studies that examine the role of pidgins, creoles, and other contact languages in the social life and culture, including the literature, of the communities where such languages are spoken.
