AFRICANISMS IN THE GULLAH DIALECT PDF

Several white American writers collected Gullah stories in the late 19th and the early 20th centuries. The best collections were made by Charles Colcock Jones, Jr. Another collection was made by Abigail Christensen , a Northern woman whose parents came to the Low Country after the Civil War to assist the newly-freed slaves. Ambrose E. Gonzales , another writer of South Carolina planter-class background, also wrote original stories in 19th-century Gullah, based on Gullah literary forms; his works are well remembered in South Carolina today. Nonetheless, those works provide the best available information on Gullah, as it was spoken in its more conservative form in the 19th century.
