Ferraz (1979) convincingly shows the impact of two typologically distinct African strata in the making of Santome: Èdó and Kikongo. In this paper, it will be shown that the extensive verb serialisation found in Santome shows a significant amount of typological overlap with Èdó multi-event and compound verb constructions. Since the impact of Èdó on Santome goes clearly beyond verb serialisation and is also found in the other Gulf of Guinea creoles, the findings strongly suggest an early Èdó founder impact in detriment of Kikongo or Bantu in general.
