Papiamento - Portuguese creole language with influences from Spanish, Dutch & English

 

Being the language lovers that we are... A place to talk about, or write in languages other than Spanish and English.

Papiamento - Portuguese creole language with influences from Spanish, Dutch & English

I found listening to these videos quite entertaining. I was able to understand most of it but it sure sounds different. Rusty, knowing both Spanish and Portuguese should have an easier time. This seems to be called Papiamento and is a Portuguese creole language with influences from multiple languages. Can you understand it?

This one starts out in English, then switches to Papiamento.

I know someone from Aruba who speaks Papiamento(as well as Spanish , English, French and Dutch). He told me that there is a lot of Dutch words in Papiamento, but I was not able to discern any Dutch in the clips you presented. To me, it sounds like a Portuguese person with only some knowledge of Spanish trying to speak Spanish . It doesnt seem that hard to understand.

The plurals are influenced by Italian, or something like it. The words seem like a nice mix of Spanish and Portuguese, otherwise, so it is mostly understandable. Nothing stood out to me as being Dutch, either.

muy interesante. Definitely a mix of Spanish and Portuguese. The spelling is rather different. I could not hear anything Dutch in it either.

I didn't know this language, but I think it sounds like a mix of Spanish and Portuguese, too. It's not difficult to understand. So much "k" is a bit surprising.

David it's spoken in Portuguese, I can't listen anything in Spanish, although I tried to listen them severals times, I can't understand them anything because they are spoken in Portuguese.

They does about to speak?

Papiamento is definitely Spanish , according to the new automatic language identifier!! I pasted a few sentences into the empty box and the result was:

Spanish, reliable, 18.8 % (With only one sentence I got Galician.)
I have found a Dutch word in the texts - OF (for OR)

In other words, use two to five full sentences instead of just a couple of words, when possible.

  • Confidence level: 18.8%
