Origin and Development of Papiamento.
Kinney, Lucretia
This paper concerns the development of Papiamento, a creole language spoken in Aruba, Bonaire, and Curacao, islands off the coast of Venezuela. The contributions of each of the languages which influenced its development--Portuguese, African languages, Spanish, and Dutch--are examined in successive sections of the paper, with a concluding portion devoted to Modern Papiamento and its social dialects. Tables comparing tense markers and personal pronouns are included, as well as a bibliography of references. (DD)
