In so doing, this book provides a new proposal (the Legal Hypothesis of Creole Genesis) to account for this “mysteriously absent creoles cluster under a single power” (McWhorter 2000: 39). 1 Introduction This chapter provides an overview of the main grammatical features characterizing traditional Afro-Peruvian Spanish (APS). The Afro-Hispanic population studied in this work lives in rural communities located in the proximities of Chincha, on the southern Peruvian coast, more precisely in the villages of San Regis, San José, El Guayabo and El Carmen.

C. Hwuimo [fuimos] todos para ver a la virgen. ’ (19) a. Nosotros hwuimos [fuimos] al río. ’  (Chota Valley Spanish; Sessarego 2013c: 50–51) b. Hwruta [fruta]; hwlor [flor]. ’ (Afro-Bolivian Spanish; Lipski 2008: 72) c. Ahwuera [afuera]; hwuerza [fuerza] outside strenght ‘Outside; strength’  (Afro-Puertorican Spanish; Álvarez-Nazario 1974: 181) (VIII) Yeísmo and /ʝ/ weakening Unlike Highland Peruvian Spanish, where the distinction between the palatal sound /ʎ/, written as and the phoneme /ʝ/, written as is found, APS presents the typical features of coastal Peruvian dialects, where such a distinction has been lost, and the only sound encountered is /ʝ/: caye < calle ‘street’; yama < llama ‘he calls’.

Working conditions were harsh and the access to Spanish was minimal since “slaves were forbidden to communicate with what freed blacks there were (West 1957: 139–140), eliminating the latter as possible sources of Spanish input” (McWhorter 2000: 8). Ruiz-García (2009) analyzes the main phonological and morpho-syntactic features found in the speech of a group of 17 18 Afro-Peruvian Spanish elder informants from Tadó, Department of Quibdó, Chocó, Colombia. 7 Nevertheless, Ruiz-García concludes that this language should be seen as the descendant of a bozal variety (rather than a creole), since its grammatical features can be analyzed as the result of second language acquisition strategies and limited grammatical restructuring, which do not imply any previous creole stage.
