kisa mo detounen vle di?

Detounen (from French detourner - divert, reroute), in Haitian Creole means to disrupt, disconcert, to redirect.
Creole speakers might say:
Li te yon bon timoun, men depi li te koumanse fè zanmi ak moun sa yo, li te detounen.
He was a good kid, but once he began hanging around these people, he was disrupted. (meaning his life was disrupted.)
