Relabeling in Language Genesis

Claire Lefebvre

Oxford University Press

A version of this chapter (“The Problem of the Typological Classification of Creoles”) was first published as the Introduction to the edited work entitled Creoles, Their Substrates, and Language Typology (Lefebvre (ed.) 2011c). That book contains 25 chapters that present detailed comparisons of some 30 creoles and their substrate languages. These creoles are from Africa, the Caribbean area, Asia, Australia, and the Pacific area. Thus, their substrate languages are typologically different. The present chapter therefore introduces the material analyzed in the chapters of that book from the point of view of language typology. It begins with a discussion of the typological classification of creole languages. The bulk of the chapter provides an overview of the results of the research contained in the various chapters in Lefebvre (ed.) (2011c).

Keywords:   relabeling, typological classification, creoles, language typology, substrate language
