Charlene J. Sato Center for Pidgin, Creole and Dialect Studies (Sato Center)
The Charlene J. Sato Center for Pidgin, Creole and Dialect Studies—The Sato Center for short, was set up in January, 2002. The Center is named after the late Charlene “Charlie” Sato, who was a well-loved member of Faculty, a popular teacher, a tireless supporter of Pidgin in Hawai‘i, and an outstanding researcher in SLA and pidgin/creole studies.
The aim of the Center is to conduct research on pidgin and creole languages and unstandardized dialects—especially research that would be of some benefit to speakers of such varieties.
