Barbudan Creole English: Its history and some grammatical features.

Aceto, Michael. 2002. Barbudan Creole English: Its history and some grammatical features. English World-Wide 23: 223-250.

Abstract: This article presents some of the core grammatical features of Barbudan Creole English, an Anglophone language that has never been described in the linguistics or creolistics literature. It begins with a historical presentation of Barbuda within the British colonial world, discussing the island’s unusual social configuration regarding the use of African slaves and its role in producing goods for plantations in nearby Antigua. The grammatical presentation focuses on the preverbal markers as well as other features and provides some comparative data mostly between Antiguan Creole English and Barbudan.
