Martinus, Efraim Frank (1997). The kiss of a slave: Papiamentu’s West-African connections. University of Amsterdam, , . xiii, 292 pp.

Notes : Corrected reprint of the author’s dissertation, University of Amsterdam, 1996. The author aims to “present new evidence ... for the monogenetic Proto-Afro-Portuguese creole theory (PAPC) and to demonstrate that Papiamentu began to develop in the Netherlands Antilles around 1640 as a mixture of several Afro-Portuguese dialects transferred from the west coast of Africa through the slave trade ... Through an extensive historical-phonological comparison between Papiamentu, Cape Verdean creoles and Guiné-Bissau creole more than 80 connections between these languages will be demonstrated” (p 1).
