Abstract: Ever since Pidgins and Creoles (P/Cs) came to scholarly attention in the nineteenth century, questions about how they developed and how they compare with other languages have dominated research and debates. This interest has resulted in several theories that try to account for the linguistic and extra - linguistic mechanisms that gave rise to these contact languages, and work that aims to demonstrate the relationships between P/Cs.
