West Africanisms in Limonese Creole English.
Winkler, Elizabeth Grace; Obeng, Samuel Gyasi
World Englishes, v19 n2 p155-71 Jul 2000
Discusses West Africanisms in Limonese Creole (LC), an English based creole language spoken in Costa Rica that shows substrate influence from the Kwa languages of West Africa, in particular from Akan (spoken in Ghana). Substrate influence is demonstrated through a comparison of LC and Akan morphophonology, morphosyntax, and lexicon. (Author/VWL)
