bulletHonorary Members > John E Reinecke


American-born John E. Reinecke (1904—1982) was a pioneer in the scientific study of contact languages such as pidgins and creoles. He was a polyglot and a language scientist par excellence. From the 1930s to the 1940s, he was a leading sociolinguist whose scholarly career was dedicated to the study of both the structure(s) and the social status of pidgin and creole languages. Reinecke's great interest was the demarginalisation of creole languages around the world, including Hawai'ian Creole English and Caribbean creole languages. Reinecke's wish was to support scholarly study of these languages, including the recognition of the future linguists of the anglophone Caribbean, UWI students.

The John Reinecke Award

This Award goes to the Best Final Year undergraduate Student majoring in Linguistics in the Faculty of Humanities & Education on each campus of The University of the West Indies, and from 2008, of the University of Guyana. It is given for the purpose of congratulating and encouraging excellence in the field of Caribbean linguistics, and is named in the honour and memory of this pioneering scholar.
