Introduction. Pieter C. Muysken: A brief biography, a language contact bibliography and a Festschrift summary Advances in Contact Linguistics: In honour of Pieter Muysken, Smith, Norval, Tonjes Veenstra and Enoch O. Aboh (eds.), pp. 1–342020
Little v and cross-linguistic variation: Evidence from code switching and the Surinamese creoles Theoretical Approaches to Linguistic Variation, Bidese, Ermenegildo, Federica Cognola and Manuela Caterina Moroni (eds.), pp. 317–3362016
The main claim of this paper is that little v is responsible for a range of grammatical properties of the predicate phrase that it selects for. Bilingual light verb constructions in several code-switching varieties provide strong evidence for this claim. It allows us to broaden the empirical scope… read more | Article
Non-finiteness in Saamáka Finiteness Matters: On finiteness-related phenomena in natural languages, Eide, Kristin Melum (ed.), pp. 189–2102016
In this paper we demonstrate that the creole language Saamáka does exhibit the finite vs. non-finite distinction by analysing the semantic characteristics and syntactic distribution of complementizer fu. We adopt a Klein style analysis of finiteness and argue that clauses embedded under this… read more | Article

Verb allomorphy and the syntax of phases Complex Processes in New Languages, Aboh, Enoch O. and Norval Smith (eds.), pp. 99–1132009
In a number of French-related creoles a distinction is made between long and short forms of verbs. We argue that the alternation is a reflex of French inflectional morphology that has survived the creolization process, showing that the result is a long-short opposition of verb forms, similar to the… read more | Article
Modelling Creole Genesis: Headedness in morphology Structure and Variation in Language Contact, Deumert, Ana and Stephanie Durrleman (eds.), pp. 61–832006
In this paper we address two current claims in creole studies: (i) adults in the creolization are the innovators; (ii) the grammatical properties of creoles are either the result of continuities from the superstrate language(s) or from the substrate language(s), i.e. discontinuities are assumed not… read more | Chapter

The aim of this article is a systematic investigation of certain grammatical aspects of three languages that came about as by-products of colonial expansion of the Dutch during the seventeenth century: Afrikaans, Negerhollands, and Berbice Dutch. The discussion is centered on three grammatical… read more | Article
