FellowSpeak: "E pluribus unum: Out of many voices, one language"
Marlyse Baptista, John Rich Faculty Fellow, professor, Afroamerican and African studies and linguistics
In this talk, Baptista explores how in a multilingual setting, the languages spoken by speakers with different first languages coalesce to give rise to creole languages. She specifically seeks to draw correspondences between linguistic features in the source languages and those of the resulting creoles while examining the processes that give rise to the observable features.
