Title: A Grammar of Saramaccan Creole
Written By: John H McWhorter
Jeff Good
URL: http://www.degruyter.com/view/product/181102?format=G
Series Title: Mouton Grammar Library [MGL] 56
Description:

Saramaccan has been central to various debates regarding the origin and nature of creole languages. Being the most removed of all English-based creoles from European language structure in terms of phonology, morphology and syntax, it has been seen as one of the most extreme instantiations of the creolization process. This is the first full-length description of Saramaccan. The grammar documents, in particular, a valence-sensitive system of indicating movement and direction via serial verb constructions, hitherto overlooked amidst the generalized phenomenon of serialization itself.
