Episode 97 – Don’t Let the Pidgin Drive the Bus!: Pidgin and Creole Languages

For our 97th episode, we are joined by Sarah FitzGerald, a PhD student at Sussex University in Brighton, England, who studies Cameroon Pidgin English. Sarah explains to us the differences between creole–we’re not talking about Louisiana here–and pidgin languages and how they develop. Later, enjoy a quiz called “Language Stuff That I Think is Interesting”!
