What's the difference between i.e. and e.g.?
in colonial history, an unstable rudimentary hybrid language used as a means of communication between persons having no other language in common. Although the term was long synonymous with pidgin-as can be seen by the use of jargon in the names of such pidgins as Chinook Jargon and Mobilian Jargon-in the 1980s some linguists began restricting its use to denote pre-pidgins, or early developmental forms of pidgins.
