This evolution can be explained not only by the role of English in education and tourism (which is mainly anglophone) but also by the role of anglophone radio and television in the area (particularly broadcasts from Barbados). Nevertheless, Creole still maintains, and often strengthens, its position both through the local radio programs and through inter-island exchanges. The different Creoles of the Lesser Antilles are largely mutually intelligible. French Guiana (Guyane) This FOD had 117,000 inhabitants in 1999 and extends over an area of 91,000 km2.

The problem, in some respects, is similar to the one discussed in the preceding chapter: the fact that, in the ACR, ‘Baragouins’ (spoken by the native Caribs in their interactions with Europeans) and ‘black varieties’ (spoken by Africans in French colonies) succeeded each other does not in any way demonstrate a genetic relation between the former and the latter. The term ‘Roman,’ which seems to have overlapped in meaning with the term ‘Frank’ did not specifically identify the Romans themselves; in some cases it seems to have designated people who lived in parts of the Roman Empire.

Hancock (1979:81–86) provides a brief critical examination of these etymologies, with more detailed discussions (see also Baker and Mühlhäusler 1990 – Editor). Regardless of the hypothesis one adopts, the term pidgin seems to have been used first of all to designate a language or language variety, before being used to characterize a language type – which is essentially a functional, rather than a structural, classification. ) One of the sources of confusion therefore lies in the fact that the word designates either a type of language, as defined above, or particular languages, generally lexified by English, which differ among themselves.
