#3990: Regional differences in Creole : Brice comments

From: Bob Brice <bobbrice@hotmail.com>

I'm from the South (Les Cayes and have never heard anyone I know referring 
to Les Cayes or Aux Cayes as "Okaj". As for the term "bagaj".. the reference 
is not the supposedly standard "bagay" pronunciation, but the french term 
"baggage". And the list goes on. Someone pronunciation, ..., and speech 
patterns and choice of words all have to do with their education level.
