Hi Everybody

My name is Kerstin and I am a student at a German university. In the course of a socio-linguistics seminar I am writing a term paper on Belize Kriol. As part of my research I have created a questionnaire about its usage.

If you are a speaker of the Creole and would like to take part in my little study, please send me ( ) your e-mail address so that I can mail you the questionnaire. You would help me a lot with my research.

Thanks very much for reading. If you have any further questions please feel free to contact me.

Hello Kerstin, I do not speak kriole, but if you do a search on this site you will prob find a lot of articles regarding it. Just scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on, enter the word kriole and a lot of different articles will be brought up. Hope this helps you.

Reality..What a concept!
