Before we begin this article, we would like to ask you to take a look at the most recent document we have published: Collection of Haitian Education Materials by Albert Valdman (Collection de Matériel Éducatif Haïtien : Koleksyon Materyèl Edikatif Ayisyen) par Albert Valdman). Ref. Indiana University-Creole Institute’s Collection, Indiana University web links, and information on the closing of the Institute (Summer 2019) after fifty years of functioning under the leadership of its founder and director, Emeritus Professor Albert Valdman.

Academies in general are not there to make a language advance. It would be more a group of people sitting and talking a lot about a language, words they would accept or not… to be added to the (written) lexicon of the language, depending on the academy. There are disciplines or rules on how to join an academy. For example, they would look at a candidate’s literary works and analyze them before that candidate would become a member. We can mention the historical Academie Française for example, where it has Dany Lafferière1 (Canadian citizen of Haitian descent), a reknown writer. A person can not fake it to become a member. The competition is very tight.

For more details on Creole Academy, take a look at an article we published, entitled: “Does Haiti really need an academy for Haitian Creole?” (Haiti en Marche, Vol. XXII #43).  Will the current Akademi Kreyòl Ayisyen (AKA) in 2021 look at these seventy-five years of research and publications to see what should be done for the Kreyol language to enter education properly, and teaching materials that have already developed?... In invention, people never start from the scratch but rather build on from an idea, or modify something that has already been done. Thus, no one can say they are going to invent the “wheel” in 2021 because it is an invention that has already been made. People can only modify it, and think of different ways to use it.

In these 75 years (or 50 years combined if we want), many great research works have already been done on Haitian Creole. We can take the example of the Indiana University-Creole Institute, which has been working tirelessly on Creole research for fifty years, not only research on Haitian Creole but also on other variety of creoles (spoken elsewhere), and research on the study of French in the American continent (Le français de l’Amérique du nord: état present2). All of this is under the leadership of (emeritus) Professor Albert Valdman, Indiana University.

So, we can say that the key works have been already done in terms of references to open doors further or new research. Among them, we can mention dictionaries, glossaries, lexicons, lexical databases (for example) in the area of computational linguistics, as great references of scientific works at the lexical level. – We took into account the two volumes of the Indiana University dictionaries that we reviewed (for the “DICO Project”, beginning in September 1999 and ended in the Spring of 2007 (with the publication of Haitian Creole – English Bilingual Dictionary, 781 + xxxiv pages), and then we were going to have the English version (English-Haitian Creole Bilingual Dictionary, 1148 pages) published in the Fall of 2017. All those in the field of Haitian Creole (such as teachers, researchers, writers, students, Haitian schools, and translators should have these two volumes as lexicographical references on their desk.

We have a first trilingual version (1981) published by Indiana University-Creole Institute in 2 volumes (Haitian Creole - English – French Dictionary, (volumes I and II). We reviewed these works for the “DICO Project”, including lexicographical works that were done or previously and published by the Kansas University-Institute of Haitian Studies under the leadership of professor Bryant Freeman (Haitian – English Dictionary). One of the works I revised (as editor at the Indiana Universty-Creole Institute, Fall 1999, 46 thousand headwords. Freeman consulted FLA’s database (a very poor one according to him) when (the late) professor Pierre Vernet (who died in the 2010 earthquake) was heading the Faculty of Applied Linguistics (FLA) at the State University of Haiti. According to Professor Freeman, Vernet would be very surprised to see the Kansas University database. We reviewed all these works at Indiana University, including Dominique Fattier’s doctorat d’Etat dissertation database3 for the “DICO Project”, and several other sources (listed in the selected bibliography of Haitian Creole – English Bilingual Dictionary). I also recommended field research be done in Haiti to verify a set of lexical data that I questioned their reliability in Freeman’s dictionary  (which would appear too frenchized, and that many monolingual Kreyol speakers (in the population) would not understand4.

Though academies are not there to promote a language, but we can’t tell people don’t join one to become academicians if they think that will help them one way or another. It’s the person’s personal business. So, we should not negotiate research when it comes to telling the truth. We should be clear in what we do or say. Haiti should be aware of all the works already done on the Kreyol language to show where we are today. We cannot fail to mention electronic publications and its importance in the study of Haitian Creole, where we published 25 years of our works and their references online. Most of these works are free of charge to assist schools, students, teachers in Haiti as well as in diaspora, learners of the language, and those who are conducting research on the creole languages around the world.

Most of these online free materials are available for teachers’ orientation as it is one of the major problems in Haitian education. Most teachers have not been oriented before coming to the classroom. That’s how we could make our own contribution by putting free documents and books online to guide them. (Ref. A panorama of Haitian Indian CivilizationAn Annotated Bibliography on Haitian Creole: a review of publications from colonial times to 2000Dictionary of Haitian Creole Verbs with phrases and idiomsGramè Kreyòl VÉDRINE grammar of Haitian Creole • Ide pou kreye yon High School Ayisyen Prive nan BostonIstwa Bouki ak Malis : Stories of the two brothers, Bouki and Malis Jipon Nwa aKoze lanmou [Vol. I, II, pwezi : poetry] • Kreyol Without Toil : an introductory course to Haitian Creole • Malice et le boeuf de Bouki : Malis ak bèf Nonk Bouki [par Deita] • Men l anlè a l ap vini (He is in the air coming, short story) • Mon pays: Haïti (par Odette R.

Not only we are talking about the reality for Kreyol to be used in all schools in Haiti as the language of instruction, but it does not mean that we will reject documents and books written in French. Yes, Haitian schools can have documents in French, but at the same time, explanations must be given in Kreyol so that all students understand and participate in class without hesitation. – So, it’s one of the ways we can use the two languages (Kreyol and French) in terms of linguistic planning, and we will emphasize on English (the third language). It’s also about time that French be taught as foreign language. It has never been taught as so. This is one of the reasons all Haitian students have been using the bat pakè system that deals with memorizing everything (in French) because French has never been taught as foreign language, and there is not a faculty of modern letters (language and literature) at the State University of Haiti (Université d’État d’Haïti) to prepare teachers for this, though some compatriots have been to some foreign language faculty such as the University of the West Indies, and others. More or less, they would have trainings in the science of language and pedagogy.

We are not against the French language, but rather against the way it has been used in Haiti. It makes no sense when a Haitian enters a government office (that is there to provide services to the population) and to be addressed in French (not their native language) when that person is in his /her own country. What if he or she cannot speak French? Not only does the customer representative embarrass that person, but that representative also shows that he / she would be superior to that person who needs to be served and who may not be bilingual. On the other hand, school should not force a student to speak French. That is demagoguery showing an extension of the colonial mentality when Kreyol is all Haitians’ mother tongue and their dominant language. It is a big and psychological problem when a teacher asks a student to express him or herself in French as if what that student is thinking or saying in Kreyol would not make sense.
These attitudes just put students in a silent position to not participate in class because they are afraid of making mistakes in French in front of their classmates. It’s about time that Haiti get rid of these colonial relics which contribute only to its underdevelopment. It is important to understand that this is not a battle between French and Kreyol as many people would show, a way to divert them from Haiti’s political reality or avoid talking about it, especially during the Duvalier regime (father and son).

On the other hand, we must encourage learning of the four main languages (Kreyol, French, English and Spanish) from an early age in Haitian schools (starting from fifth grade, as it is the case in many countries today). By doing that, Haitian students will have time to master them at the end of their secondary school (as long as there are good teaching methods or methodologies for learning them, and through language institutes for learning English, Spanish, French and audio programs5 available online including television programs that they can watch).

We should take a look at how Seychelles (in the Indian Ocean), use the three languages (Creole, French, and English) with no problem, and step by step. We have a Haitian compatriot for example who was involved in school works in that region (the late Professor Pierre Vernet, who also contributed to their linguistic planning project.

Do we have enough teaching materials written or translated to Kreyol that would cover elementary, middle, and high school level?6 The answer is “no”, we don’t have. That is, from day to day, we, as volunteers, can translate a some materials (From French to Kreyol). We do not have to wait for the government to start all the basic works when they are not interested in doing so either.

The other reality is that there is no market to sell works that are being produced in Kreyol. So, we must think of making them available online free of charge so that all students, schools can have access to them in Haiti, and to help quickly with literacy programs in the native language. – The Kreyol language is like raw material when we are thinking of writing. That is, we can make two holes with short hoop: (1) write in Kreyol and then (2) translate what we write into French, English or Spanish to sell or create a market for us as authors. That way, we will not lose anything. We must think of all strategies to help Haiti, and ourselves as authors.

When an author produces some works in Kreyol, and does not even put a chapter of it free online, that author is blocking the advertising door for people to know his /her works, and for people to become familiar with that author. As the Haitian proverb goes, Bay piti pa chich (Giving a little [bit of something] is not being stingy). The more we give, the more friends we make, the more people (will) become familiar with our works. This is what we should start doing in terms of the work that must be done within the framework of documentation, and the dissemination of the Kreyol language. It is important to document certain works, and the easiest way to do that would be to publish them online, and share them on all social networks so that more people will know them. Among these works, we can mention videos for teachers’ training /seminars, and other audiovisual materials. For example, we can videotape some classes in Martinique, Guadeloupe, and French Guiana… (to name a few France’s département d’outre mer or overseas territories that are using a curriculum similar to France, and which may have some local ingredients that can be added to it).

In short, let’s say let’s not try to reinvent the wheel because its invention has been made already. What we can do would be to modify it in order to make it suitable to our need(s), but it will always remain round and measure 360 degrees. In other words, for Haitian Creole, the key research and publications have already been done. Now, it is how we want to use them according to our needs. We mention fifty years of research and publications by Indiana University-Creole Institute, 25 years of research and publications of E. W. Védrine Creole Project (and largest biography of references that exists for Haitian Creole), the tireless works that Professor Michel DeGraff started through the Platfòm MIT-Ayiti pou yon lekòl tèt anwo : Initiative MIT-Haiti and an entire scientific glossary publised online (STEM), that is being edited from time to time in order to enrich the lexicon of the language at the scientific level, and for further dictionary projects in the future. We have also mentioned works by many other people (authors, and independent researchers) that we have documented in our bibliographic research (Ref. • A bibliography of theses & dissertations related to Haiti [20th Century], including Theses & Dissertations Related to Haitian Creole • A bibliography of theses and dissertations related to Cape VerdeA Bibliography of Theses and Dissertations related to Haiti [2011–2020]A bibliography of theses and dissertations related to Haiti [From 2001-2004]A bibliography of theses and dissertations related to the Dominican Republic • An annotated bibliography On Haitian Creole: a review of publications from colonial times to 2000 (endèks otè e endèks tit) • Bibliographie Haïtienne et Indices BibliographiquesCollection of Haitian Education Materials by Albert ValdmanDictionary of Haitian Creole Bibliography [part I]. 246 p. 1998 • Haiti, a directory of publications : Ayiti, yon ànyè piblikasyon  (Works of various authors who have contributed to writings dealing with Haiti, including Haitian Creole) • Haiti’s Super Web Directory & Diaspora Online Educational Resources and Orientation Training for Haitian TeachersTeknik pou fòmile yon sijè rechèch pou tèz, e oryantasyon bibliyografikTwenty Five Years of Research and Publications on Haiti, the Haitian Diaspora and on Haitian Creole  • Welcome to L’Asile [Lazil]), a commune in Haiti : Byenveni nan Lazil, yon komin Ayiti)…

There are some twenty dictionaries published on Haitian Creole (mostly bilingual) though not all of them would be based on scientific research, but it is important to take a look at their content. There is Gramè Kreyòl VEDRINE Grammar of Haitian Creole  (354 p., 1996). It is the first grammar ever published in Haitian Creole, covering all aspects of the language. There are many theses and dissertations that have already been published and continue to be published. Currently, Haitian Creole is among other search engine languages that google can translate automatically to other languages on their list. Haitian Creole is taught at universities abroad (when it’s not yet taught at universities in Haiti where it is spoken, and where more than 12 million people speak it as their mother tongue). Haitian Creole is one of the three languages used by the state of Florida; that is, everything concerning the state would appear in English, Spanish and Haitian Creole).

For those brainwashed people who say “We are not going anywhere with Kreyol”, their mind is still chained with the chains of slavery, though they are broken from their feet. These people are against Haiti’s development. They would not like to see all Haitian children to receive a free education where they are learning in their native language and learn French, English and Spanish as foreign language.

Védrine fèk di la a (sou entelektyèl k ap pale sou kreyòl an franse): Dènye egzanp mi wo mi ba sa a soti pami Akademisyen nan Akademi Kreyòl Ayisyen (AKA) kote Akademisyen Christophe Charles fèk pibliye yon atik an franse, kote l ap mande pou yo chanje òtograf kreyòl la pou l vin pi sanble ak òtograf franse. Rezonnman li tèt anba nèt: li panse fòk grafi kreyòl la vin pi fasil pou sila yo ki deja pale franse! Mwen bay egzanp sa a paske sa montre aklè pwoblèm ideyolojik frankofil pami entelektyèl nou yo. Pwoblèm lan grav anpil. Sa pral mande anpil vijilans wi.

Kòmantè /Kesyon #3 Michel DeGraff: Pwen sa a enpòtan wi – demagoji leta konsènan «lang ofisyèl» yo.Ata Konstitisyon 1987 la (ki bay 2 lang ofisyèl) rive amande nan lang franse sèlman. Tout ministè yo se pi plis an franse yo kominike alekri. Ata inivèsite d Ayiti kominike an franse nan kad fòmèl malgre rektè a se yon akademisyen (manm AKA). Kidonk, demagoji a toupatou. Ata alfabè Kreyòl la, Ministè Edikasyon Nasyonal twouve l ap pwone yon chante kote se lèt alfabè franse a ki vin sèvi pou lèt alfabè kreyòl la. Fòk nou kalkile aspè jeyopolitik kesyon sa a tou – paske rive jounen jodi afrankofoni gen yon gwo enfliyans sou politik edikasyon an Ayiti. Sou dosye Akademi Kreyòl Ayisyen (AKA): wi, mwen se akademisyen. Men, mwen toujou ap kritike demagoji ak koripsyon k ap fèt nan akademi an. Wikenn sa a, m ap ekri yon atik pou m kritike dènye pawòl akademisyen Christophe Charles k ap fè pwopozisyon tèt anba sou grafi fransè a. N ap jwenn pi plis kritik mwen sou AKA nan atik sa a https://facebook.com/michel.degraff/post/10156399700313872. Fòk nou sonje pwoblèm medyokrite ak koripsyon se yon kansè ki gaye toupatou nan leta. Sa n ka fè, se kanpay konsyantizasyon pou tout sosyete sivil la rive konprann pwoblèm lan, epi fòse leta fè chanje ki nesesè.

Contribution à l’étude de la genèse d’un créole : L’Atlas Linguistique d’Haïti, cartes et commentaire. Université de Provence. [«L'objet de cette thèse est double: il s'agit de proposer un grand corpus d'haïtien parlé, tout en tenant, par le commentaire du corpus, d'éclairer la genèse de cette langue. L'enquête a porté sur 20 localités du milieu rural où ont été interrogés des témoins unilingues. L'enquête a permis de constituer une banque de données fiables. La plus grande partie de la thèse est dédiée aux commentaires (vol. I et II) associés aux cartes (vol. III, IV, V, VI). Cet ensemble est accompagné d'une introduction, de conclusions, de deux index et d'une bibliographie. Nous nous sommes intéressés par-dessus tout aux implications génétiques découlant de l'examen des données géolinguistiques. Ce qui explique qu'en règle générale, dans les commentaires, l'accent soit mis sur l'analyse diachronique et comparative. Nous avons cherché à mettre en évidence, de façon systématique, le rôle du français (koïnè d'oïl) dans la formation du créole haïtien. L'examen du matériau linguistique collecté a permis de progresser dans la compréhension du phénomène de la créolisation. Le résultat le plus saillant de l'étude est la mise en évidence du caractère massif de l'héritage français. Nous avons accordé moins d'attention au rôle des langues de l'Afrique de l'Ouest, sauf dans quelques commentaires et dans les conclusions où se trouve explicité ce qui a pu être des influences africaines au plan sémantique et syntaxique.»
"The Linguistic Atlas of Haiti, Maps and Commentaries: Contribution to the Study of the Genesis of a Creole Language. -- The purpose of the study is twofold: first, to elucidate the general processus of creolization of language in Haiti; second, to provide empirical input for further works. Our study centered on 20 localities. The methodology consisted of extensive interviews with illiterate unilingual peasants. The Atlas brings together authentic data. The major part of this thesis is taken up my commentaries (Vol. I and II) and maps (vol. III, IV, V, and VI). The whole is rounded off with an introduction, a few conclusions (pp. 974-992), two indexes (pp. 993-1016) and a bibliography (pp. 1017-1029). We were interested, above all, in the genetical implications that ensued from dialect investigation using the geolinguistic methods of dialect analysis. In general, in the commentaries, emphasis is laid upon diachronic and comparative study. Of special interest to us was the role or influence of French (koïnè d'oïl) in the formation of Haitian Creole (HC). The storehouse of information on dialects that has been compiled has attributed significantly to our understanding of the creolization phenomenon. The most important finding is the major role of the French Language in the genesis of HC. Relative little attention was paid to West African influences, except in part of some commentaries, and in conclusions that discussed the African legacy. Both of the syntax and the semantics of HC show West African reflexes."].

[This dissertation research uses experimental methods for the study of prosody and intonation in two Caribbean creoles: Haitian and Guadeloupean. The goals are to record primary linguistic data, perform acoustic analysis, describe the tonal patterns, and analyze the intonation-pragmatics interface in the two languages in a comparative perspective. This study describes the characteristics of the prosodic systems in these two languages; determines whether French-based creoles share common characteristics in terms of prosody and intonation; and provides insight into the destiny of African tonal systems as the speakers of these strikingly different languages learned the stressless and toneless lexicon of French.” (Ref.

Foreign language teaching: French, Haitian Creole. [Abstract: “The purpose of this study is to investigate historical and linguistic forces that interact to undermine school achievement in Haiti. From a sociocultural perspective, this study explores the social, political, and historical forces that mediate language ideology and practices in Haitian schools and how such ideology and practices influence students' academic achievement. This study analyzes the role of French and Creole in schools and investigates the linguistic tensions in the Haitian society where Creole, the home language of both students and teachers and the only language broadly used in the country, is relegated to secondary importance in education and other institutional settings. The study relies on ethnographic data collected in a third grade, a fourth grade, a fifth grade, and a sixth grade classroom in a private and a public school in a semi-urban area around the capital city of Haiti as well as data collected in different sectors of the society (e.g. state and private institutions). Building upon the literature regarding classroom discourses and the literature on sociocultural theory, coloniality, language ideology, and symbolic domination, this study problematizes language and educational practices in Haiti and offers recommendations for rebuilding Haiti's educational system in the aftermath of the devastating earthquake of January 12, 2010. Given the role of students' home language in their instruction, this study argues that any effort aiming the revitalization of the school system in Haiti needs to take into consideration issues related to language in the education system.”].

KÒMANTÈ E EKLÈSISMAN SOU ITILIZASYON KREYÒL AK FRANSÈ NAN LEKÒL AYITI : Comments and clarification on the use of Creole and French in schools in Haiti. Emmanuel W. Védrine. [Fò pèp la konnen ke se pa yon batay ant fransè e kreyòl, kòmsi pou ta retire fransè epi mete kreyòl nèt. Gen moun ki ta entèprete l konsa. Pou moun k ap voye-monte (pale anpil) ki pa gen oken esperyans an lengwistik, oken esperyans an pedagoji panse fò ta gen yon edikasyon an kreyòl nèt, men yo pa bay esplikasyon kòman sa ta dwe fèt pou sipòte agiman yo a. -- Pou ta gen yon edikasyon an kreyòl nèt, fò ta gen tout materyèl didaktik yo an kreyòl (depi nivo matènèl jiska bakaloreya, e nou te ka ajoute jiska nivo inivèsitè). Men nou dwe klè an tèm balans, an tèm reyalite a, an tèm amenajman lengwistik ki dwe fèt (aménagement linguistique : linguistic planning). Premyèman, kisa ki pi enpòtan Ayiti pou n gade, kesyon pou n poze. Èske se yon edikasyon an kreyòl oubyen èske se opòtininite nou dwe bay tout timoun pou ale lekòl? Nou fè yon rale sou sa nan youn nan liv nou, Yon koudèy sou pwoblèm lekòl Ayiti. (ed., 2007). Fò n ale ak reyalite a. Fò n sispann fè sa yo rele «mawonaj». Sètadi nou wè reyalite a, men nou pa vle atake l, nou pa vle frape klou a sou tèt li pou n klouwe sa n bezwen klouwe a. –- Nou nan yon sitiyasyon kote plis pase 50% (senkant pou san) moun analfabèt. Sa nou bezwen Ayiti ki trè enpòtan se batay pou leta ta bay yon edikasyon gratis nan tout peyi a (soti klas matènèl pou rive nan bakaloraya), e pou timoun yo ta jwenn aksè a materyèl didaktik yo bezwen tèlke prete yo lekòl, gen aksè a vèsyon elektwonik yo, oubyen achte vèsyon elektwonik yo pou yon ti kras lajan. -- Lè nou gade lòt peyi, pa egzanp nan konstitisyon ameriken, tout timoun gen dwa a yon edikasyon gratis (soti laj 5 an jiska laj 16, 17, 18). Gen timoun tou ki retade; yo ogmante laj la kote yo kapab pase plis tan lekòl. -- Se pa santre sou yon edikasyon an kreyòl nèt oubyen an fransè nèt, oubyen a mwatye men li enpòtan dabò pou n gade posiblite pou tout timoun ti Ayisyen gen aksè gratis pou al lekòl (piblik yo), e jwenn materyèl pou yo prete. Li lè pou gen yon lwa obligatwa pou timoun nan depi laj 5 pou anrejistre anndan yon lekòl kèlkonk. Se pa kay moun pou y ap rete kòm restavèk, se pa machin pou y ap siye nan lari men pandan yo trè jèn men pou yo ta anndan lekòl jiska laj 19 an pa egzanp. -- Laj 18 an se yon laj adil nan plizyè kote nan lemond. -- Dezyèmman, lè timoun nan pale yon lang, lang matènèl li tankou nou wè nan tout gran peyi, lang timoun nan se li ki itilize nan edikasyon. Donk li enpòtan pou lang matènèl la itilize nan edikasyon (pou bay esplikasyon ladan menm si se liv an fransè k ap itilize nan yon klas). --  Pou sitiyasyon lengwistik la an Ayiti,  lengwis yo rele yon «diglosi : diglossia (an anglè)». Se yon sitiyasyon kote gen de (2) lang ki la sou menm teren, men gen fason yo itilize de lang sa yo. Pa egzanp, tout Ayisyen pale kreyòl kòm natif. Nou gen fransè nan konstitisyon 1918 la pou premyè fwa kòm lang ofisyèl Ayiti. Nan konstitisyon avan yo, pa t gen oken lang ofisyèl ki te deklare. Nou konnen 1918 se epòk okipasyon ameriken (soti 1915 rive nan 1934); sètadi, konstitisyon ki fèt avèk pwopozisyon okipan an, kote bouyon l te revize nan Washington. Men pa t gen afè lang ofisyèl nan konstitisyon kit e la avan 1918.  –- Majorite zèv yo (liv, materyèl lekòl Ayiti yo an fransè. Èske leta pral tradui yo pou lekòl piblik? Sa mande lajan pou ta fè sa; sa mande moun ki espè nan tradiksyon e edisyon pou ta fè yon tèl travay, pa machòkèt k ap voye-monte. Donk lè nou gade reyalite a, sa k kapab fèt se yon kesyon adaptasyon. Kisa sa vle di, «adaptasyon»? Sètadi, pandan timoun nan gen liv an fransè (si yo pa an kreyòl), anseyan an ta dwe bay tout esplikasyon an kreyòl; sa se youn. Dezyèmman, gen preparasyon anseyan yo ki dwe fèt. Nou pa ka travay yon kay, epi pou n pa ta fè fondasyon kay sa a dabò. Sètadi, lè nou gade tout pwoblèm sa yo, premye bagay pou n atake se anseyan yo pa egzanp. Èske yo pa ta dwe gen yon sètifika kote yo pase nan yon seri pwogram pedagojik ki pou sètifye yo? Nan pwogram pedagojik sa yo, nan sèlman ou pral anseye yo teknik pou anseye, teknik modèn, epi tou reyalite lengwistik la pa egzanp, kòman ke anpil fwa yo menm yo kreye yon seri prejije ki pral enfliyanse elèv yo nan sans sa a. Sètadi fòmasyon mèt yo, fòmasyon pwofesè yo ta dwe fèt. Kòman l pral fèt? Ebyen gen yon dal lekòl ki te la, ki te konn prepare yo; lekòl sa yo fèmen. Nou mansyone sa nan yon atik nou pibliye: Koudèy sou Edikasyon Siperyè Ayiti, yon lòt etap apre nivo segondè : A look at Higher Education in Haiti, another step after the secondary level. Donk fò leta ta rekonsidere ouvri lekòl sa yo pou yo retounen al pran fòmasyon avan yo kòmanse anseye nan lekòl piblik yo. Moun antre nan sistèm atravè moun pa pa egzanp, nan yon seri lekòl san ke yo pa sètifye pou vin anseye (menm jan sa fèt Etazini kote fiti anseyan an sipoze al pran fòmasyon pedagojik pou vin lisansye kòm anseyan, nan nivo li vle anseye a soti matènèl pou rive nan high school ou segondè).

[“…The Creole Institute at Indiana University (IU) Bloomington itself has resulted from the melding of old and new. The combination began in 1960, when the Indiana University Bloomington French department, with a strong tradition of teaching language through literature, hired linguist Albert Valdman, now Rudy Professor of French and Italian and Linguistics. He laughs at the memory of how volatile that mix seemed four decades ago. "Traditional literature-oriented foreign language college teachers were afraid that, as was the case at Cornell, linguists would take over language instruction," he smiles. "People thought that hiring a linguist was asking for trouble."].

We know very little about language and reading acquisition in young creole speakers. The aim of the present study was to examine the development of reading-related skills in native speakers of Haitian Creole (HC), a French-based creole, educated in French. In order to isolate the effects of speaking two highly similar languages, we compared Haitian children in 1st and 2nd grade to Spanish-French bilingual children and French monolingual children from European descent. Children from our sample were from five different schools in Montreal and had similar socioeconomic status. Participants were tested individually over three sessions on French standardized and experimental tasks assessing metalinguistic awareness, reading, comprehension, vocabulary and mathematical skills. Bilingual children were also tested on reading and spelling tasks in HC and Spanish. Results showed that HC and Spanish bilinguals performed as well as French native speakers on metalinguistic and reading tasks. However, Spanish-speaking children received lower scores than children in the two other groups on a receptive vocabulary measure. In an experimental task comparing the spelling of words of varying phonological similarity in HC and French, Haitian children had more difficulty spelling words that are cognates in HC and French than homophones or non-cognate translations. Findings from this study were interpreted in light of the Bilingual Interactive Activation model (Dijsktra & Van Heuven, 1998).”]

SPEARS, Arthur K. A tribute to Yves Dejean and Albert Valdman. [“This book honors two eminent scholars in the field of Haitian Creole studies: Yves Dejean and Albert Valdman (in alphabetical order). Dejean is the leading scholar of Haitian Creole who is also a native speaker of the language, having been born and raised in Haiti. Valdman is the senior scholar in the field and has trained at Indiana University not only Dejean, but also a host of other scholars now working in Haitian Creole studies and other fields dealing with French varieties, French-lexifier creole languages, second language acquisition, and applied linguistics. Both have published prolifically on the origin and development of Haitian Creole, its grammatical structure and use, and its use in education, all key concerns of this book. Their contributions have made our field what it is today, providing the foundation and edifice that we seek to embellish with this book…” (Arthur K. Spears, an excerpt from the introduction)].

It is intended for use by individuals wanting to communicate with monolingual Haitians. A revision of earlier materials, this set emphasizes authentic representation of Haitian language and culture, focuses on interpersonal communication needs, and uses an officialized spelling, which is explained in the introductory section. The materials consist of 25 lessons, each containing some or all of the following components: a situational dialogue, vocabulary list and exercises, notes on specific grammatical constructions, review exercises, listening comprehension practice exercises keyed to a recorded text (not included), spelling exercises, and reading texts on Haitian geography and history. Lesson topics include introductions, getting and giving directions, school and classroom, clothing, objects of daily use, families, farming, telling time, laundry, describing things, travel and transportation, self- and medical care, shopping, food and restaurants, weather, magic and superstition, community life, and polite or socially appropriate behavior.

For example: What type of materials (according to the subject(s) the teacher is teaching), for who (students’ age, and their literacy level), what’s the people’s level (are all functioning at the same level, up / down), what’s their age (children, teenagers, or adults), for what reason (objective), materials that are already available (has the the teacher localized them), what materials does the teacher need and that don’t exit, the idea of making copies of rare materials such as some books that are no longer available on the market)].

(SOME) Comments on E. W. Védrine Works
(Kèk) Kòmantè sou zèv E. W. Védrine

 “I am impressed with Emmanuel Védrine's motivation for the development of Haitian Creole as a language that can be standardized and adapted to serve all the functions of its speakers and, in particular, members of the American Diaspora who require medical, social, and educational services in the language. Given the limited resources at his disposal, the linguistic tools Védrine has produced are noteworthy, in particular, his Dictionary of Haitian Creole Verbs with Phrases and Idioms. It is a very useful resource for linguists, translators, and learners of the language. With regard to its originality and overall quality, I would rank it as the best work on the vocabulary of the language and right next to Freeman and Laguerre's Haitian-English Dictionary and our own somewhat dated Haitian Creole  - English - French Dictionary. The high quality of the work is reflected by its having been deemed worthy of review in the prestigious Journal of Pidgin and Creole Languages. He is also a prolific author of literary and educational materials in Haitian Creole. He would be an invaluable collaborator to any project involving the description of Haitian Creole and the preparation of various linguistic tools for the language.” –– Albert Valdman, Rudy Professor of French and Italian and Linguistics, Indiana University - Bloomington.

“…Emmanuel W. Védrine, prolific Haitian researcher, linguist and poet living in Boston, has helped me producing a very rich section dedicated to the Haitian Creole Culture which is in rapid development…” –– Francesca Palli, Webmaster Potomitan.

“Emmanuel Védrine, a researcher of Linguistics from Massachusetts … Védrine has published a large body of work on the internet and through educational journals. Védrine is best known for his book, Gramè Kreyòl VEDRINE Grammar of Haitian Creole... He believes that it is necessary to have as many types of tools to make it possible to promote linguistic research in different areas of the rapid development of the Haitian language. Védrine has contributed to the most influential Haitian Creole dictionaries…”  –– Martine Louis, Boston Haitian ReporterVol. 6, issue 11.

“Emmanuel W. Védrine deserves praises for references he publishes on many texts on and in Haitian Creole and a little presentation in his Haitian Creole Bibliography…, from colonial times to 2000. Védrine organizes the work by domain, and by author in alphabetical order.” –– Renaud Gauvain, Dean of the Faculty of Applied Linguistics (Faculté de Linguistique Appliquée (FLA), State University of Haiti).7

Dec. 2016. ‘...This project is deeply indebted to the work of Michel-Rolph Trouillot, Matthew J. Smith, Laurent Dubois, Léon D. Pamphile, J. Michael Dash, Hubert Devonish and Emmanuel Védrine…” ––  Matthew James Robertshaw.

"I am greatly interested in Creole language. In late October (2004) I began compiling a bibliography of works in and about Cape Verdean Creole... I was delightfully surprised when I did an online search for "Creole bibliography" and your book, An Annotated Bibliography on Haitian Creole: A review of publications from colonial times to 2000, came up. I was very impressed (3,019 entries!). I began reading some materials online about your research. You are certainly a very prolific writer. I decided that I'm going to order your book for further inspiration. I've been thinking about creating synopses/literary critiques for Cape Verdean Creole literature as there doesn't seem to be much on the subject online or in print…” –– Gil Pires.

“The Haitian-American Society and The Negritude Society recognize Emmanuel W. Védrine for his outstanding research on Haitian Creole, particularly his An Annotated Bibliography On Haitian Creole: A review of publications from colonial times to 2000” - The Haitian-American Society and The Negritude Society, University of Massachusetts-Boston.

“Fellow countryman Paul Laraque prophesied long ago that a new era would probably come in Haitian literature when it would be done by writers who not only learn how to speak, but also how to write in Creole' (Haïti Progrès, March 25 - 31, 1987). Emmanuel W. Védrine is a multi-talented writer and researcher. Linguist, founder and editor-in-chief of the “E. W. VÉDRINE CREOLE PROJECT”, up to present, he has already explored almost all facets of the Creole language. His works are a testimony.” –– Kesler Brezault (Keslèbrezo), Poet, novelist & editor-in-chief of 'Edisyon Lagomatik' (Montreal).

“... Emmanuel Védrine is one of the most prolific writers, editors and publishers of Haitian Creole texts. One of his ongoing goals is to provide Haitian Creole dictionaries, grammars and abundant texts for bilingual education teachers. He is a particularly gifted poet ... Védrine is one of the most focussed, practical, and hard-working person I know ...” –– Marilyn Mason, MIT2 (Boston).

“This ['Védrine Archive'] site is a special one because it represents most of Emmanuel Védrine's contributions to the Creole Forum. Védrine is a writer and researcher who is investigating everything related to the Creole language. In this way, it would be difficult for us to find another person who is more passionate about the native language and who is working so hard for its advancement in educational and literary areas.” –– REKA (Rezo Entènèt Kreyolis Ayisyen).

“Emmanuel Védrine assisted with the development of the Pimsleur course 'Speak and Read Essential Haitian Creole. His contributions included offering advice on grammar, spelling and usage. Védrine was a valuable member of the development team. His comments and opinions provide us with an in-depth look at Haitian language and culture.” –– Mary E. Green, Development Editor (Simon & Schuster; Pimsleur Language Programs).

“Dear fellow Caribbean linguist, Védrine. Greetings! Over the years I have been impressed by your prolific and energetic research on Haitian language and culture.” –– Vincent O. Cooper, Ph.D is in linguistics and Romance languages from Princeton University.

“Dear Védrine, I have on many occasions benefited from consulting the Haitian bibliography you have compiled and published on the internet. Allow me to express my gratitude.” –– Gerard A. Ferere, Ph.D Professor Emeritus, Saint Joseph’s University.

“… Petit lexique du créole haïtien  Depuis longtemps, Mango Dyesifò, à travers le hepdomadaire Haïti Progrès, a entrepris de répertorer les termes créole spécifiquement rares et modernes. Le linguiste Emmanuel Védrine a essayé de regrouper cette minitieuse recherche pour venir à bout de ce travail. Nous espérons d'autres éditions à venir pourront augmenter ce travail pour que le créole s'enrichisse de nouvelles expressions. Cet ouvrage compte plus de 400 vocables environ, choisis parmi les vieux et les plus recents mots en usage où les expressions imagés, recueillies d'une part dans le milieu haïtien... Il n'y a rien définitif dans ce lexique. Le public comprendra que dans ce genre de travail il y aura quand même des oublis… Espérons que la prochaine édition comblera les lacunes soit par l'addition des vocables, soit en entendu encore le répertoire des expressions complémentaires qui viennent s'ajouter au créole pour rendre ce lexique complet possible…” –– Professeur Marc Prou, University of Massachusetts-Boston.

"Emmanuel Védrine's research into Haitian Creole testifies that the Creole genius is not only alive, but that it will survive mondialization and continue to blossom well beyond the Creole world. His persistent effort to compose a repertoire of our immense cultural and linguistic wealth is a resonating call that joins the concert to safeguard mankind's linguistic heritage. We must work to the max if we really want to move on and help each other in every sense. Success requires sacrifice. We alone are not the ones who are going to benefit from our hard work, but rather the generations to come, as well as the whole world.” –– Jean-S. Sahaï, Guadeloupe, Agreg Page.

“Emmanuel Védrine is a colleague who pays tribute to the country. In testimony of admiration for all of his important works on Haiti and for Haiti.” –– Dr. Claudine Michel, Dept. of Black Studies, University of California, Santa Barbara.

“…It is worth mentioning the useful online source compiled by Emmanuel W. Védrine and Andrés Paniagua from the University of Massachusetts-Boston, “A bibliography of Theses and Dissertation related to the Dominican Republic.” This online bibliography lists dissertations and theses abstracts and is arranged alphabetically by author with the capability to search by author’s last name and by year.”8–– Sarah Aponte.

“Dear Védrine, we know that you’ve been working a long time on the Kreyol language. Thanks to researchers like you that made us able to publish Gramè Kreyòl, Vol. I (2003). There remain a lot of work to be done, but we are moving alone. Thank you again for this type of encouragement!” ––Joseph-Sauveur Joseph, Ph.D

“Emmanuel Védrine came to us as a 'gift from God'... He not only spoke French and Spanish, but also spoke Creole and Italian.... Since we had a large population of minority students who speak Spanish, French, and Creole (his native language), he was a wonderful role model for our 85% minority population, being able to handle very well a very emotional classroom of students.... I was delighted to bring him on board.... He was always prepared to teach, and he had an excellent background in his discipline (language)...” - Sister Maria Jude, CSJ, Former principal of St. Gregory's High School, Boston.

  6. Creole as a second official language of Haiti (on par of French) and what?
    The Constitution of 1987 stipulates only one language unites all Haitians – it is the Kreyòl language. The same Constitution recognizes Kreyol as another official language on par with French. The linguistic situation of Haiti has been (up to now) a diglossia9 where French or Kreyol can be looked at as a dominant language in some cases. For instance, most of the official documents, including teaching materials, are still written in French. There is a need to render them in Kreyol. There have also been a great number of teaching materials in Kreyol (from the last twenty years) covering the elementary and middle school cycles. And now, there are also Haitian researchers and educators in the Diaspora who are developing materials for Haitian Bilingual Programs (elementary, middle and secondary level). Despite all these types of activities, the real change remains in the hands of the government – not only to build free school throughout the country, but also to promote teaching and literacy programs in the Kreyol language first and try to work toward a solid bilingual program. The day this dream becomes a reality – when all children in Haiti will be able to attend schools freely, to learn how to read and write in their native language, and to master it before learning a second language, education will be a great step in the development of the country and of the genuine movement for schools reform sought by many conscious Haitians.

The second part analyzes, also in relation to Haiti, the subsequent development and transformation of this concept. The conclusions from this analysis are not restricted to the theoretical investigation of Creole.

Dezyèm pati a analize, an relasyon tou ak Ayiti, devlopman e transfòmasyon ilteryè konsèp sa a. Konklizyon analize sa a pa limite yo a envestigasyon teyorik lang kreyòl la. Yo gen enplikasyon pratik enpòtan pou kesyon oubyen òtograf, alfabetizasyon, oryantasyon e objektif ansèyman primè e segondè, metòd d ansèyman e aprantisay lang fransè a, e fason apopriye pou diskite pwoblèm lang avèk yon odyans ayisyen.» (Tradiksyon kreyòl: Emmanuel W. Védrine).

Ask not what Kreyol can do for you but what you can do for Kreyol.
Pa mande sa kreyòl ka fè pou ou, men pitio sa w ka fè kreyòl.
