Trinidadian French Creole Video

The Flavour of a Fading Creole is a short study of the last users of
Trinidadian French-lexicon Creole, in the community of Paramin in
Trinidad. We hear the language through the voices of its last remaining
speakers, and get a taste of its culture through a presentation of
Trinidadian French Creole cuisine, flavoured by the very seasoning grown
by farmers in this agricultural community. The recordings were done
by Nicole Scott who was seeking to research and describe this language
before it disappeared. This video is approximately seven minutes and 59
seconds long (7:59).
