French Caribbean Creole, specifically Haitian Creole, is the native language of a number of students in American Schools. In order to help these students master English, the teacher should understand Creole structure and grammar. Haitian Creole is described as to: (1) Phonology--consonants; sounds present in English but lacking in Haitian Creole; sounds present in both languages but with different distribution; vowels; syllable structure; and morphophonemic and morphological invariance; and (2) Grammar--articles and plurality; pronouns; relative clauses; noun classes; verbs; the copula; questions; negatives; and lexicon.
