Intensified! On Reflexive Expressions in Early Sranan

Publication: Revue roumaine de linguistique, LIV (3-4), p. 331-347
Publisher:Editura Academiei
Abstract:This paper is a follow-up on Muysken & Smith’s (1994) preliminary overview of the types of reflexive expressions found in some sources of Early Sranan. It outlines and examines the syntax and semantics of Early Sranan reflexive expressions in all available 18th-century sources stored in the Suriname Creole Archive, including the Court Records and the Sranan version of the Saramaka Peace Treaty (1762). Subsequently, the Early Sranan findings are compared with their Eastern Maroon Creole equivalents in order to further establish their validity. Finally, a fine-grained analysis of the different uses of Early Sranan srefi is presented in order to gain a deeper understanding of the relationship between the adnominal and the non-juxtaposed intensifier and its role in the historical development from intensifier to reflexive.
