    Haitian Creole is a French based creole spoken in Haiti, located on the western three-eighths of the island known as Hispaniola. The façon de parler is a result of the gradual change of the French dialect of Franco-European colonists by African and Creole slaves (African slaves native to the island). This change includes the speaking of French vocabulary in an African (Fon) syntax. Standard French Fongbe Haitian Creole Ma poule (my chicken) Koklo che (Koklo = chicken / che = my) Poul mwen (Poul = chicken / mwen = my) As well as the addition of a pluralization marker like the Fongbe word le. Standard French Fongbe Haitian Creole Mes bécanes (my bikes) Keke che le (my bikes) Bekàn mwen yo (my bikes) This practice of using a pluralizing marker can also be found in Jamaican (English) Patois.
