Abstract:

This paper shows that pidgin and creole linguistics is not a uniform, homogenous discipline with clearly marked boundaries between it and other branches of linguistic investigation. Pidgin and creole studies exhibit a great deal of overlap with many realms of linguistics. However, in this paper the scope of considerations is narrowed and the attention is directed to sociolinguistics, language acquisition studies and historical linguistics, in which the studies of tongues in question are firmly embedded.

Keywords:

contact languages, sociolinguistics, cultural space, code-switching.
