    Truth. Have seen 5, and parts of 2 others. I’m not sure I could handle them now, though.
    Yes, I did learn a bit of Tok Pisin, though I've never been to PNG. Here's a link to a little textbook I put together for students when I was teaching a course in English-based pidgins and creoles:

    Cool, thank you! What other creoles have you studied?

    Like any linguist (in the sense of academic who studies how languages work) I've looked at many creoles -- Papiamento from Curacao, the French creole of Mauritius, Jamaican, Sanan English creole from Surinam. But Tok Pisin is the only one I actually learned how to speak well enough to hold a conversation in.

    That's very cool. I presume that's because creoles give us an insight on how languages are born? What are your thoughts on Derek Bickerton? I was recently reading him.
