Guy B. Johnson Revisited: Another Look at Gullah.
Baird, Keith E.
Journal of Black Studies, v10 n4 p425-35 Jun 1980
Reviews the debate between Herskovits, Turner, and Johnson on Africanisms in Gullah. Suggests that Whinnom's approach, which considers pidgins and creoles under the rubric of "linguistic hybridization," is a more appropriate model with which to view Gullah, making irrelevant the question of whether it is an African or European language.
