Atlantic Meets Pacific: Lexicon Common to the English-Based Pidgins and Creoles.
Holm, John
Language Sciences, v14 n3 p185-96 Jul 1992
Compares studies of English-based creoles in Atlantic with work on pidgins and creoles in Pacific to examine the core of lexicon that cannot be traced to current standard English and historical relationship between languages. The lexical base of Pacific varieties was both English and English-based creoles of the Atlantic. Grammatical and lexical items spread from Atlantic to Pacific via diffusion. (Author)
