|Title:||Creoles in education: A discussion of pertinent issues||Authors:||Migge, Bettina
|Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/5873||Date:||May-2010||Abstract:||The last three decades have seen a steady increase in the use of Pidgin and Creole (P/C) languages in public life. In many P/C-speaking communities, P/C are now widely used in health education, vocational training, political campaigning and in the media. These developments demonstrate – if it has to be demonstrated at all – that P/Cs are viable means of communication and are well able to express as wide a range of issues as the European languages with which they coexist.||Type of material:||Book Chapter||Publisher:||John Benjamins||Keywords:||Creoles;Educational trends||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Not peer reviewed||Is part of:||Migge, B., Leglise, I. and Bartens, A.
