This chapter discusses sociohistorical and linguistic factors that might have contributed to shaping vernacular Brazilian Portuguese. Data from an Afro-Brazilian community are analysed, taking into consideration divergent features in relation to standard Brazilian Portuguese which lead to the conclusion that vernacular BP is made up of a continuum of varieties, in which none can be named a creole.

Keywords:   Vernacular Brazilian Portuguese, contact, diversity, Quilombos
