A Peak at Death: Assessing Continuity and Change in an Underdocumented Language.
Sabino, Robin
Language Variation and Change, v8 n1 p41-61 1996
Assesses phonological continuity and change in the last stage of the moribund dialect called "Negerhollands" in the Danish West Indies (DWI). The article contrasts earlier and current views of this dialect, sketches language contact in the DWI, examines the last speaker's language history and vowel systems, and assesses variation in a Negerhollands corpus.
