By Sari Pietikäinen, Alexandra Jaffe, Helen Kelly-Holmes, Nik Coupland

DEAR ANA LUCIA,

I DON'T KNOW OF VERY MANY RECENT THINGS ON SAO TOME, BUT THERE IS SOME
EXCELLENT WORK FROM THE LAST 30 YEARS OR SO:

1) STUDIES IN PORTUGUESE AND CREOLE/MARIUS F. VALKHOFF

2) MISCELANEA LUSO-AFRICANA/EDITED BY VALKHOFF

3) THE CREOLE OF SAO TOME/LUIS IVENS FERRAZ

I HOPE THIS HELPS.

BEST WISHES,

MICHAEL ACETO

MY DISSERTATION ON ANGOLAR CREOLE PORTUGUESE, ONE OF THE THREE CREOLE
DIALECTS SPOKEN ON SAO TOME AND PRINCIPE. I CAN'T SEND IT TO YOU VIA
