[Reality Check] There’s no such thing as an ‘African language’


Though it is a popular language, spoken in the African Great Lakes region and other portions of south-eastern Africa, it isn’t popular in North Africa. This is the second most popular language in Ethiopia after Oromo. Some Caribbean languages have also been influenced by African languages. Examples are the Jamaican Patois or Jamaican Creole which has most of its loan words from the Akan language in West Africa. Others are the Haitian Creole and the Antillean Creole which are French-based but with influences from Portuguese, Spanish, English, Taíno, and West African languages.
