Haitian Language

Haitian is the French-based creole language spoken by the majority of Haitians. The language is derived from West African languages, primarily from various Mande and Fon dialects. A significant portion of the vocabulary is derived from French, with some vocabulary also being derived from TaĆ­no and Spanish. Haitian Creole is the second most spoken language in the United States by persons for whom English is not a native language (after Spanish). Haitian Creole is used as an unofficial language in radio ads, popular music, and TV dramas.
