Abstract
The present Study of the Creole dialect of Martinique Is a result of personal experience, observations, notes, inquiries and correspondence dating back to 1939. In July of that year the present writer first visited the French island of Martinique in the west Indies for the entire summer. A short while after his arrival he met some young Martinquais of his own age, students on vacation like himself. It was from these college and lyceé students that the writer first learned about the existance of a local patois, and from them that he acquired his earliest notions of the dialect.
