Thesis Description :

My research project should bring a better knowledge of this Creole, working with date collected directly in fieldwork and analyzed according to the modern methods employed in descriptive linguistics and typology.  
A better knowledge of Fogo’s Creole must contribute to (i) help to develop educational projects to the speakers of this variety and (ii) a most precise reconstruction of the history of the Upper Guinea Creoles.
