On the Origin of Creoles

Although I love linguistics, I’ve never conducted research in it beyond class projects. A few weeks ago I posted my term paper on periphrasis just for kicks. It was a fun project, and I had found the research challenging. There were a lot of papers with relevant information, but few that focused on the precise areas I was investigating. Googling for “periphrasis tsai” revealed that my paper hadn’t been indexed yet, but I came across an article (PDF) by Michel DeGraff (one of my favorite professors). It’s definitely worth reading if you’re interested in this sort of thing. DeGraff is a master at debunking.
