Papiamento

Papiamento (or Papiamentu) is the language spoken on the Caribbean islands of Aruba, Bonaire, and CuraƧao (the so-called "ABC islands").

Papiamento is a creole language akin to Spanish and Portuguese, with a vocabulary with roots in Portuguese, Spanish, Dutch, English, Arawak native languages, as well as African languages.

Those who advocate an African origin feel that the greatest menace to the existence and further development of Papiamentu is that native speakers tend to deviate from its origins by replacing original African, Portuguese and Dutch words with Spanish and/or English equivalents, due mainly to the cultural influences of the United States, as well as nearby Venezuela.
