Abstract

With the exception of Baltasar Fra Molinero, few non-linguists have been interested in the dramatic and literary representation of black Spanish in the Golden Age theater. "Black Spanish" or habla de negro was a stock way of speaking that playwrights commonly attributed to black characters in the sixteenth and seventeenth century. The unfinished black Spanish glossary presented here attempts to unveil this unique non-standard form of Spanish, not only for scholars interested in Spanish theater and race studies, but also for theater troupes that might wish to present these plays.
