Formal Approaches to Creole Studies II

November 8-9, 2010, Centre for General Linguistics

This workshop is a follow-up of the successful FACS-Workshop, held at CASTL, University of Tromsø, November 14-15 2008.
The goal of the workshop is to bring together scholars who share an interest in the formal study of creole languages. Highlighting the more formal issues surrounding creole formation may help us in furthering our understanding how pidgin and creole languages come into being as well as why their grammatical properties are the way they are. At the same time, it may foster the interaction between theoretical linguists and researchers 'in the field'.
