Abstract

A study of the speech of black Chotenos suggests an earlier stage when partially Africanized Spanish was generally spoken in the Chota Valley. This finding is significant in postulating the use of partially creolized Spanish away from the Caribbean 'heartland', where most such dialects are found. The finding is also of interest because the Chotenos have always coexisted linguistically with non-African neighbours and were never part of a resistance movement or cimarron society. -from Author
