Abstract

A Review of a Book by Marcin Walczyński entitled A living language. Selected aspects of Tok Pisin in the press (on the basis of “Wantok” newspaper).  Nysa 2012: Oficyna Wydawnicza PWSZ w Nysie. ISBN 978-83-60081-61-7, 309 pages.

A living language. Selected aspects of Tok Pisin in the press (on the basis of “Wantok” newspaper) by Marcin Walczyński is a revised and expanded version of the doctoral thesis defended at the Department of English Studies at the University of Wrocław. The book is structured into six chapters where the first three chapters serve as a theoretical introduction to the topic, and the next three chapters provide a discussion of Tok Pisin. The reviewer emphasizes the salience and accuracy of the work and points out that the book focuses not only on the sociological and cultural aspects of the discussed pidgin, but also its phonological and morphological development. Additionally, the reviewer draws our attention to certain aspects that demand further discussion, e.g. irregular phonetic development caused by frequency and can shed new light on understanding the phonetic and phonological mechanisms appearing in Tok Pisin. Finally, the reviewer points out that the monograph is meticulously and carefully prepared.

Keywords: Tok Pisin, pidgin, creole, phonetics, grammar, culture, lexicon, standardization.
