  -> Thanks!

agree  xxxCHENOUMI: dlo-a. The "-a" particle is phonetically linked to the noun and not pronounced as a "separate" letter. This is the linguist' view, and I'm very strict on that :). Great, otherwise!

  -> Thanks! Believe it or not, officially the use of ['] and "-" in Haitian Creole is quite optional and is a methodolgy that most scholars are abandonning today for the sake of clarity. Reference: Advanced work done in Creole by MIT2 in Boston
