Ya, so a while back I heard about Geechee and Gullah language, I'm not sure if they are same or related dialects. It is an English/West African Creole that developed on the Middle Passage between African groups who had been exposed to West African Pidgin English and French to varying degrees.
Imagine if people who all speak different languages are canned together like sardines in a ship with no light or movement, it is only reasonable that they will try to talk. It's so interesting to think there are blacks in the USA who still speak an African derived creole. I supposed Black English is in some ways a very weak evo or devolution of this speech.
Here is a Geechee Rapper,
Obviously, it is part Black English and Geechee.
So waht doyou guys think, any experiences with the Geechee or Gullah people?
