Here’s another great question from our readers. We love to help you with your pronunciations in Haitian Creole, just ask us anything.
N’ap rive Oakland Park Boulevard
We’re arriving at Boulevard Oakland Park
Note the contraction of “nou ap” to form the more common “n’ap.”
Here’s the original question:
How would one say “Now approaching Oakland Park Boulevard”?
In the context of it being said on a public bus system to the people riding on the bus. Thanks!
In Estherline’s pronunciation she said the name with her Haitian accent. You don’t need to do that if you are in America, but she’s new to English.
For the street name you would put Boulevard ahead of the name. This conforms with French and Creole sentence structure.
