Greenhouses in Roquetas in 2004

Roquetas Pidgin Spanish is a pidginized form of Andalusian Spanish spoken among agricultural workers in Roquetas de Mar in Spain. Immigrants attracted to work in the greenhouses of the area come from many countries in north and west Africa and eastern Europe, and few speak any Spanish before arrival. The resulting pidgin has such typical characteristics as an avoidance of antonyms.[1]
