The Primacy of Language Mixing: The Effects of a Matrix System.
Field, Fredric
Southwest Journal of Linguistics, v18 n2 p47-78 1999
Focuses on the differences between bilingual mixtures and creoles. In both types of language, elements and structures of two or more distinct languages are intermingled. By contrasting Nahuatl, spoken in Central Mexico, with Palenquero, a Spanish-based creole spoken near the Caribbean coast of Colombia, examines two components of language thought to be the most resistant to change: grammatical elements and core vocabulary.
