The African slave trade, beginning in the fifteenth century, brought African languages into contact with Spanish and Portuguese, resulting in the Africans’ gradual acquisition of these languages. In this book, John Lipski describes the major forms of Afro-Hispanic language found in the Iberian Peninsula and Latin America over the last 500 years. As well as discussing pronunciation, morphology and syntax, he separates legitimate forms of Afro-Hispanic expression from those that result from racist stereotyping, to assess how contact with the African diaspora has had a permanent impact on contemporary Spanish. A principal issue is the possibility that Spanish, in contact with speakers of African languages, may have creolized and restructured - in the Caribbean and perhaps elsewhere - permanently affecting regional and social varieties of Spanish today. The book is accompanied by the largest known anthology of primary Afro-Hispanic texts from Iberia, Latin America, and former Afro-Hispanic contacts in Africa and Asia. • First book in English to provide an overview of the language contact situations that shaped Afro-Hispanic language • Provides a comprehensive coverage of five centuries and five continents of Afro-Hispanic language and cultural encounters • Contains the largest-known anthology of primary texts documenting Afro-Hispanic language Contents 1. Africans in the Iberian Peninsular, the slave trade, and overview of Afro-Iberian linguistic contacts; 2. Early Afro-Portuguese texts; 3. Early Afro-Hispanic texts; 4.
