Write The First Customer Review

The Story of Papiamentu is a non-linguistic history of the creole language, Papiamentu, which is spoken in Curacao, Aruba and Bonaire. Papiamentu is a Spanish-based creole which most believe to have originated in the 17th century. The exact origin of Papiamentu is in dispute, and this text discusses whether it is the result of the Spanish of explorers mixing with the language of the local Indians, or if it originated with Portuguese slavers in Africa."
