#2820: Creole Language: Ruckle asks

From: James R. Ruckle <jruckle@citynet.net>

Does anyone know if Kreyol is simplex or complex? If it is a complex
language, it may not have a standard orthography, or it may be like
Mandarin and Cantonese - the same on paper, mutually incomprehensible
in speech. Is a spell checker really needed in a language that is
fundamentally oral? If you can define why you need standardized,
written Kreyol (government documents, speech output devices, business
transactions), you will know where to get your "correct" Kreyol from.
