How well do you understand people from Dominica and St. Lucia? We use ni(to have) instead of gen We also use (ka) different. Mwen ka manjé (I am eating) Jus curious...

That's interesting.
I speak neither of these Creoles.
I do understand most of the St. Lucian Creole, but I haven't heard the Dominica's.
Is the Dominica's French-based?

Mèsi :)

  1. Yes our creole is french based. Very similar to that of st lucia or martinique/guadeloupe. There are many Haitians living in dominica, and they communicate in creole with us without any problem!

    Ou ni pou vizit domnik pitet, moun ka pale kwéyòl toutpatou!

    Mèsi pou wepons ba mwen.

    1. Dakò, mèsi anpil.
      Piblikasyon woman, dokimantè, pwezi, ak anpil lòt pwojè literè, se pi wo avansman nan lang Kreyòl la.
      Yo montre ke lang lan gen anpil kapasite.
