Re: Preserving Grenada’s Keyol Language…

Monsieur Louison, your comments as always adds flavor to the pot!

I have to say, I was a bit disappointed to not see a Gouyavanite subject in this entire language project. After all, we still make claim as the heart and soul of the Afro-French Grenadian base.

Our Keyol language should be part of our school teaching from standard one to seven and beyond. That is the only way for this important part of our culture to survive. On my father side of the family my aunts spoke Keyol. Especially when it was something they did not want others outside their sisters and brothers to understand. Them speaking French Creole Patois later was confusing to me because they carried a British Surname by that time. It was not until much later – many years that I discovered they descended from Afro-French maternal ancestry.
