Cameroon Pidgin English (CPE) is an English-lexified Atlantic expanded pidgin/creole spoken in some form by an estimated 50% of Cameroon’s population, primarily in the anglophone west regions, but also in urban centres throughout the country. Primarily a spoken language, CPE enjoys a vigorous oral presence in Cameroon, and the linguistic examples illustrating this description are drawn from a spoken corpus consisting of a range of text types, including oral narratives, radio broadcasts and spontaneous conversation. The authors’ typologically-framed investigation of the features of the language, from its phonetics, phonology and lexicon to its syntax and discourse structure, allows the reader a clear view of the linguistic character of CPE, offering a comprehensive description of the language that will be of interest to creolists as well as linguists interested in African languages, contact linguistics and comparative linguistics.

“This is a thoroughly well-written and extensively researched monograph on the grammar of Cameroon Pidgin English. It is clearly the most ambitious of all grammars, few as they may be, that have been published so far. For me, it will be the reference grammar for CPE given the breadth of coverage and the copious number of examples used.”
“The thoughtful reader will find this grammar of Cameroon Pidgin English satisfying, reliable, and most laudably, thought-provoking.”
“This book tells us a great deal about the language, and incidentally shows us what can be extracted from a well-conducted corpus-based study and deserves to be emulated. There are many ways to write a good creole grammar, and this is one of the best.”
“This book and the corpus on which it is based [...] constitute an important advance for the description and documentation of African (contact) languages.”
