Gullah

Postby PseudoSkull » 2016-12-13, 15:09

This is the main creole language of my state. I have 2 books on the language. Anyone else happen to be interested?

Sorry for the late reply. My advisor works on Gullah. There's a very conservative variety of it spoken not all that far away from where I live (that's the one he works on in particular).

If you don't mind me asking, what are the titles of these two books, and who wrote them? :)

So I looked up for the language and found this.
To see the all the articles about Gullah language, check the Gullah section in the menu bar between the site's header and main display.

I found this 4-minute YouTube video which provides the language's basic words and explains the etymological origins of some of them.

You might want to activate the subtitle, as the audio quality isn't pretty good.
