Note: there are a wide range of Creoles spoken
throughout the Caribbean, with sometimes contraditory differences.
For these web pages, we attempted to select words that would be
recognizable to most speakers, but not all variations are listed.
The selection process took into account 1) spelling taken from some widely accepted scholars
in the field, and 2) the broadest usage of the word or phrase.
Caribbean Creole (Lesser Antillean Creole French) is spoken in
Martinique, Guadeloupe, Dominica, Grenada, and St.
Lucia (other similar but distinct forms of Creole are spoken in
Haiti, St. Thomas, Guyana,
Trinidad, and Lousiana).
For more information on Creole languages, see
The Creolist Archives,
Creole for Beginners,
and St. Lucia's Creole.
