Tengo una pregunta sobre los idiomas que se hablan en la isla de Hispañola. Como sabemos, las lenguas usadas en allí son (mayoritariamente) de origen europeo. Son el Fracés y el Español. Sin embargo, hay una diferencia entre estos dos. En Haiti hablan una forma de Francés que es criollo, y tiene una variedad de influencias. No es Francés estándar, digamos. A diferencia, en la República Dominicana parece que todo el mundo habla el Español más o menos convencional. En entendible internacionalmente. En qué se basa esta diferencia, que un lado habla un idioma criollo y el otro uno estándar? Gracias por considerar la pregunta!

I would like to know if there are native communities in your island.
What are their name ? Their location ?
I'm writing a book about the amerindian's heritage in the Caribbean culture.
As a french anthropologist, I have already plenty informations about the french west indies.
So, your help will be appreciate and credited.
Thank you for sharing.
