St Kitts is thus potentially the birthplace of the first English- and French-based Creole languages of the Caribbean.

The recently rediscovered texts of Samuel Mathews in Kittitian English Creole, first published between 1793 and 1822, provided a Creolists workshop with the opportunity of analyzing these texts and assessing their historical significance for the evolution of the Atlantic English Creoles. The 21 papers in this volume, which derives from that workshop, include contributions by many prominent specialists in this field.
