? about the è sound. Lapriyè - priye - Prayer and pray When I hear natives Say "priye" with no Accent It sounds as if it the è as in lapriyè.

-è in the H.C. word lapriyè (to pray, prayer) sounds like the "e" in the word get.
-e in the H.C. word priye (to pray, prayer) sounds like the letter "a" in the verb to say.

both H.C. word can be used as noun or verb.

egzanp:
N'ap fè yon ti priye.
or
N'ap fè yon ti lapriyè

and

Priye pou mwen
or
Lapriyè pou mwen.

  1. Mandaly,

    So you could say "Lapriye mwen se pou Ou Bondye"
    if you are using "lapriye" as a noun (akan grav
    nan kou)? Or is this not good Kreyol?

    Mesi.
