- What are the first words or types of words that are created in a new pidgin language? Here is a list of English-based pidgin languages.
- What are the first grammatical structures or types of grammatical structures that are created in a new pidgin language?
- What word structures or grammatical structures are notably left out when pidgins first start, if any?
Basically, how do they evolve, what comes before what generally speaking, or is it a completely random, arbitrary process?
I would assume that complex creole grammar would not exist before some basic nouns and verbs are shared in the pidgin, but perhaps that is a bad assumption. Maybe even transaction-related (buy/sell) or work-related words come first, before more philosophical words, I don't know.
