    Very interesting! Now I’m just curious, does Dominican Creole differ greatly from Haitian Creole or other forms of the Creole language?

      Hi Maria. Thank you for the comment. There are many similarities between Dominican & Haitian Creole. They are both French based. However, Haitian Creole is widely spoken and written while Dominican Creole is spoken more than it is written.
