CapeVerdean Language Project. Final Report.
Macedo, Donaldo P.
The CapeVerdean Language Project's final report presents a phonemic analysis of the Capeverdean language, a derivation of Portuguese traditionally considered a dialect. The project's research is based on the assumption that Capeverdean is a language with its own dialects, and the research was intended to determine an autonomous phonemic representation of it. An introductory section outlines the history of the Capeverdean language, and subsequent sections contain the following portions of the analysis: segmental phonemes, vowels, consonants, syllabic structure, vowel and consonant alternations, and the phonological process. A discussion of Capeverdean orthography looks at the need for standardization, describes an experiment to develop a standardized orthography, and presents the proposed new version. A Capeverdean language teaching text, reader, and Capeverdean/English glossary are included, and a teacher's manual and classroom visuals are appended. (MSE)
