Hi Mandaly! I have two phrases that I wanted to know the meaning of: "Nan kad lit" and "espas an Plennè"............

Hi Mandaly! I have two phrases that I wanted to know the meaning of: "Nan kad lit" and "espas an Plennè". It is from the title of a news article about Covid-19. "Eske li Nesesè pou Moun Dezenfekte Espas an Plennè yo nan Kad Lit Kont Kowonaviris la?" I assume Espas an Plennè means wide open spaces, but I am not sure about the second one.

Yes, anplennè or an plennè means outdoors, or open spaces

Nan kad lit kont - kad (french: cadre) means frame; lit (french: lutte) means fight, struggle; kont (french: contre) means agaisnt. -   It means 'regarding or concerning the fight against .....'

Is there a creole word for a "player" or "womanizer". Like a guy who has a lot of women ect.

could you explain the uses for the word "ladan"? I've been told it means "in it," but it doesn't seem to be the case all the time

ladan / ladann - in it (yes!), in there, in that, sometimes expression for not being involved

Kèlkeswa sa k ap pase ant de (2) moun sa yo pa antre ladan.
Whatever is goign on between this two don't get into it

M pa t ladan. - I was not involved in it

Yo mete m ladan - they got me involved it

Pa mete m ladan - Don't get me involved in this
