Abstract and Keywords
This article focuses on the languages derived from the drastic restructuring of Arabic. It first distinguishes between Arabic-based Pidgins and Creoles and peripheral Arabic dialects and Arabic spoken as a non–first language as an interethnic medium. The discussion then turns to the general features of Arabic-based Pidgins and Creoles, Sudanic Pidgins and Creoles, immigrant Pidgins in Arab countries, and the relevance of Arabic-based Pidgins and Creoles for Arabic linguistics and general Creolistics.
