What is creole

What is Creole

  • Creole is a natural language mixed from two different languages.

  • The vocabulary is very similar to the original languages but the grammar may be more different. The grammar is more simpler than their original languages.

  • The difference between a pidgin language and a Creole language is that people use pidgin as a second language and people who speak Creole use the language as a primary and native language.

  • Most Creoles were created in the colonies so most of the languages are based on English, Portuguese, French and Spanish.
