Learn Haitian Creole. Find texts and vocabulary.
Author Jean Boger Laferriere has just released a brand new book which will help you find all the words you need to know. It's a lexicon/dictionary.
This bestselling Alphabetical Haitian Creole Dictionary was composed and prepared by Haitian American linguist Jean Boger Laferrière who started studying at Sorbonne University in Paris, France. He completed his higher studies at Anglia Ruskin University and Open University.
Jean Boger continues to write about Haitian culture and languages while residing in New York City. In using this lexicon, he wants you to remember that there are some letters that Haitian Creole does not have. For example, X and Q are added to the above list of letters in order to give you their corresponding English version of the words.
Enjoy this small book that can help you learn Haitian Creole, one of the most beautiful, phonetic, and colorful languages of the world.
