Wednesday, October 29th, 2008

Salikoko Mufwene recently returned from a short trip to Paris, where he gave the keynote address at the CNRS-LACITO Workshop on Ecology and Language Evolution. His October 23 talk, “Humans as the ecology of language(s),” is the latest in a series of over a dozen papers presented by Salikoko in 2008.

In addition, several of his articles entitled “Creoles,” “Pidgins,” “Koinés,” and “Lingua Franca,” plus several other shorter ones on specific creoles and pidgins, were recently published in Encyclopedia Britannica Online, wrapping up a year of several such publications on topics related to language evolution and creole-related phenomena.
