Introduction

 

This project studies the Portuguese-based Creoles which developed from the early 16th-century in the Dravidian-majority regions of Southern India and Eastern Sri Lanka – a subset of the Asian-Portuguese creoles which, despite having been the very first, remain understudied - from a diachronic and a synchronic perspective.

 

- Diachronic research involves the collection, edition and analysis of primary written sources produced in Portuguese, in South India, during and after Portuguese colonial rule

 

- Synchronic research involves the linguistic documentation and description of the surviving Dravido-Portuguese creoles of Kerala [India] and Eastern Sri Lanka
