A Strong Alternative to the Bioprogram Hypothesis
The main goal of this book has been to bring to light the progress that has been made over the last fifteen years regarding the relabeling-based account of creole genesis. 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).
