Abstract:This paper has given a brief overview of the linguistic pattern in Pacific, with focus on multilingualism in Melanesia. The linguistic diversity has given rise to creole languages in three of the Melanesian countries: Solomon Islands, Vanuatu and Papua New Guinea. These creole languages – Solomon Islands Pijin, Bislama and Tok Pisin – are based on English but consist of many features from the indigenous languages. Some examples are given from Solomon Islands Pijin. Finally Kwaio, one of the indigenous languages, has been given a brief presentation.
