The Emergence of Creole Subject-Verb Agreement and the Licensing of Null Subjects.
Meyerhoff, Miriam
Language Variation and Change, v12 n2 p203-30 2000
Attempts to resolve an outstanding question as to the most appropriate structural description of the relationship between subject and verb in Bislama (a Melanesian creole spoken in Vanuatu), discusses what the implications of this analysis might be for a Creole ontogeny, and attempts to unify this analysis to the verb system with the distribution of phonetical null subjects in Bislama.
