We analyze primordial non-Gaussianity in single-field inflationary models when the tensor-to-scalar ratio is large. Our results show that detectable levels of non-Gaussianity fNL∼50 are still possible in the simplest class of models described by the effective theory of inflation. However, the shape is very tightly constrained, making a sharp prediction that could be confirmed or falsified by a future detection of non-Gaussianity.
