Spelling[edit | edit source]
Identify whether the following words might be words that are spelled correctly in the standard orthography of Haitian Creole.
- bann Yes. It means "group". There are two n’s because one of them is part of the digraph an indicating /ã/ and the other makes the sound /n/.
- continan No. The letter c only occurs in the combination ch.
- édé No. The letter é is not used in the standard orthography, although it might be in other orthographies.
- konsèy Yes. It means "advice".
- septanm Yes. It means "September".
