Creole languages lexified by Spanish and Portuguese have played a relatively small role in theories of creole genesis. In contrast, English and French-based creoles have always been viewed as the "default" or prototypical kind.
This volume takes issue with this traditional view by arguing that there is not a priori reason to give plantation creoles this preferential treatment. As the ten articles assembled here show, the plantation scenario is only one of many — a realization that poses special challenges to theories of creole genesis that seek to be maxi- mally comprehensive. Overall, Iberian-based creoles thus demonstrate a diversity of complex circumstances that any overarching theory of creole genesis ought to take into account.
