Let’s Learn Papiamentu (a Wiki)

 

Papiamentu is a moving target, difficult to pin down. It varies from island to island, neighborhood to neighborhood, generation to generation. Linguists have various opinions about the history, phonology and grammar. Native speakers often disagree about the details of the language.

 

In this wiki we will try to compile reliable information about the grammar of the Curacao dialect of Papiamento/Papiamentu. If you add information to this wiki please cite the source. Reliable sources include textbooks and articles in scholarly journals. Some online materials that are written in Papiamentu may also be considered reliable.
