AbstractPichi is an Afro-Caribbean English-lexifier Creole spoken on the island of Bioko, Equatorial Guinea. With at least 70’000 speakers, Pichi is the second most widely spoken African language of the country. Pichi is an offshoot of Krio (Sierra Leone) and shares many characteristics with its West African sister languages Aku (Gambia) as well as Nigerian, Cameroonian and Ghanaian Pidgin. At the same time, contact with Spanish, the colonial and official language of Equatorial Guinea, has made a significant impact on the lexicon and grammar of Pichi. This first comprehensive description of Pichi is based on extensive fieldwork in Equatorial Guinea, and presents a detailed analysis of the phonology, morphology and syntax of the language. A separate chapter is dedicated to Pichi-Spanish codemixing. The annexes contain a collection of interlinearised and annotated texts of different genres, as well as Pichi-English-Pichi vocabulary lists.
