“Two Missionaries’ Orthographies in Conflict in Curaçao: Papiamentu’s 19th Century Case,” by Gabriel Antunes de Araujo, LACS Weekly Seminar Series

In this talk, we will present an orthographic and lexical analysis of three of the first printed documents in Papiamentu, a Portuguese-based Creole spoken in Curaçao: Prefecto Apostolico di Curacao na Cristian di su mision and Catecismo Corticu, both by M. J. Niewindt (1833, 1837, respectively), and Kamiena di Kroes, by J. J. Putman (1850).
