Title: Kriyol Syntax: The Portuguese-Based Language of Guinea-Bissau
Written By: Alain Kihm
Description:

This book describes the Portuguese-based Creole which is widely spoken as a first language in Guinea-Bissau. The study focuses on one variety, 'central Kriyol', and aims to present a complete description of the grammar of the language. The theoretical framework for the syntactic analysis is purposely eclectic but relies primarily on Generalized Phrase Structure Grammar.
