The concluding chapter highlights the major points that have been made in this book. The following themes are discussed: relabeling and exceptionalism (section 1); relabeling and the principled contribution of substrate and superstrate languages to creoles (section 2); relabeling and theories of the lexicon (section 3); relabeling and types of morphemes (section 4); relabeling and variation among creoles (section 5); relabeling and other approaches to creole genesis, including the feature pool (section 6); relabeling and the relevance of pidgins and creoles in the debate on language origins (section 7).
