GULLUH FUH OONUH (Gullah for You)

A Guide to the Gullah Language

by Virginia Mixson Geraty

An alphabetical collection of Gullah words and phrases that offer tips on pronunciation. The guide is a valuable tool for students and researchers wanting to learn more about the Gullah language.

A study of the only English-derived Creole language in use on the United States mainland, and the unique linguistic contribution of the African-American people to our American heritage. Developing from the blending of the African tribal languages spoken by slaves and the various Creoles and languages spoken in the New World, Gullah attained Creole status during the mid seventeen hundreds, and was learned and used by the second generation of slaves as their mother tongue.
