0. Conclusion This brief look at syllable onsets in Negerhollands demonstrates there is more to the phonotactics of Caribbean creoles than has been assumed. The evidence presented above speaks to three points: First, we have seen that discussions of syl­ lable structure in Caribbean creoles and their substrate languages need to take into consideration permissibility as well as frequency.
