`This book is a marvellous feat of culling major issues and synthesising complex arguments. It is a boon to those of us working in the field.' - Journal of Linguistics

`Todd offers a thought-provoking and extended guide to the issues.' - International Review of Applied Linguistics in Language Teaching

`This slender but meaty volume is a good, solid and current introduction to the field of pidgin and creole languages.' - Language in Society

`It may well accomplish the dream of all writers of such handbooks: convince the beginner that he should learn at least one new language and devote himself to the field in the area.' - Barbara H.M. Strang, Modern Language Review

`A splendid book. Its lucid account of the nature and variety of these languages provides an easily assimilated guide for those ignorant of the subject, and a thorough aide-memoire for those who work in the area ... a book with real substance.' - Forum for Modern Language Studies
