For example, the use of articles shows some of the unique features of the Haitian Creole language. There is an indefinite article, which is used in front of the noun it modifies, and a definite article, which comes after the noun it modifies and changes form based on the sounds in that noun. Examples: Kay la - the house; ban an - the bench; bannann nan - the platain etc. Haitian Creole pronouns have both long and short forms. Examples: M for Mwen etc.. In addition to functioning as the subject of a sentence, pronouns can be placed after nouns to indicate possession. Examples, kay mwen - my house; liv li - his/her book etc.

This textbook is gradually introducing you to the structure of the language. It also provides you with cultural notes and explanations.
