Dominika Swolkien received her M.A. in Spanish Philology from the University of Cracow (Poland). After further study in Portugal at the University of Coimbra (Licenciatura em Estudos Portugueses e Ingleses), she got a grant from the Fundação para a Ciência e Tecnologia (FCT) in Lisbon to do her Ph.D. dissertation on the variety of Cape Verdean Creole (CVC) spoken on the island of São Vicente with Prof. John Holm at the University of Coimbra.

The main goal of her dissertation is to explain the genesis and development of this unusually acrolectal variety of CVC. The FCT grant enabled her to do extensive fieldwork among the basilectal speakers on the island (2003-2005). It also enabled her to attend post-graduate courses at the School of Oriental and African Studies, London (Fall/Winter 2003/2004) and to conduct research in Portuguese and British libraries, as well as attend international conferences. 

In London, she benefited from the contact with young researchers from the Hans Rausing Endangered Language Program and learned about the wide range of possibilities ofnew multimedia technology in linguistics.

Dominika Swolkien was elected secretary of Associação de Crioulos de Base Lexical Portuguesa e Espanhola. She is part of a growing group of young and enthusiastic descriptive linguists doing research on creole languages at the University of Coimbra. She is currently living in Mindelo, Cape Verde, teaching at IESIG and finishing her doctoral dissertation. Her conference papers and publications include the following:
