-where you are from/born/raised
i see my self as a citizen of the world, for i like all cultures and all races, and been to many countries, although i mostly see myself as an American./
Bronx, NY, U.S.A. /
i w as raised in multiple places XD 4 years in Holland, 12 in the Dominican republic, 2 in Argentina, the rest in the States ^^

-where you are now
Tampa, Fl, U.S.A.
-what ethnicity/culture you belong to
my mother is Swiss, my dad is Dominican, i was born in the states, i see myself as human rather than stick to any group XD i love them all what can i say./
i love all cultures, i lean more towards Asian culture, and Argentinian but i really learn from the whole world.

-what language you typically speak
i think in mostly English and Spanish, i also know French, Portuguese, and Italian, not perfectly because i've lost practice and finish school a while ago, but soon as my schedule and economic situation is balanced i will regain practice and also add German, Catalan, Japanese, and Korean to my list, i do plan to learn Mandarin before i die, but it is a long road far away for now lol

I don't know about the meaning of patois in English, but in French, it simply means "local language", something that is derived from a main language (e.g. French or English). There are different kinds of patois in France, not only créole, but many other types...

Créole (Creole in English) doesn't actually refer to a single language. It's a language that is produced by the transformation of a language by locals (in this case, transformation of the French language by the people that live in Martinique).
Oh thanks for the info Jo
