I know "konstriksyon" is construction in english. But my Indiana University Kreyol dictionary does not have the word constriction in it, or at least I cannot find it. This dictionary is exhaustive for Kreyol, but it is that; Kreyol only, not an english to Kreyol. Would you please tell me the Kreyol word for constriction? Mesi anpil.

You are right, I haven't found the English word "constriction" in any Haitian Creole dictionaries that I've come across.
constrictionretresisman, kontraksyon
constrict - resere, ratresi
