Haitian Creole, commonly referred to as simply Creole, is a French-based creole language spoken by 10–12 million people worldwide, and is one of the two official languages of Haiti, where it is the native language of a majority of the population. The language emerged from contact between French settlers and enslaved Africans during the Atlantic slave trade in the French colony of Saint-Domingue (now Haiti). Although its vocabulary is mostly taken from phonetic 18th-century French, its grammar and sentence structure is that of a West African language, paticularly the Fon language and Igbo language.

Haitians are the largest community in the world speaking a modern creole language.
