Haitian Creole (Creole Haïtien) is a French-based creole language spoken by 10–12 million people worldwide, and the only language of most Haitians. It is a creole language based largely on 18th-century French with influences from Portuguese, Spanish, English, Taíno, and West African languages. - Wikipedia

"Of all the French creoles of the Western Hemisphere, Haitian is probably the one that bears the most influence from African languages. Scholars who believe that creoles develop gradually (a point of view not held by all) have suggested that this is a result of two factors. One is the unusually high ratio of Africans to Europeans in the colony’s early history: perhaps 9 to 1 in the 17th century, rising to approximately 16 to 1 in 1789 and increasing further during the Haitian Revolution (1791–1804), when most of the French colonists either left or died. The other is Haiti’s early isolation from France, especially after independence in 1804." - Britanica
