Saramaccan is a creole language spoken by about 26,000 people near the Saramacca and upper Suriname Rivers in Suriname, and 2,000 in French Guiana. The speakers are mostly descendants of fugitive slaves; they form a group called Saramacca.
Saramaccan is remarkable to linguists because of its unusual divergence from its source languages.
The Saramaccan lexicon is largely drawn from Portuguese, English, Dutch, and Sub-Saharan African languages, especially Kongo and Gbe. The African entries account for about 5% of the total. Over half of Saramaccan's words are from English. It is generally agreed that Saramaccan's Portuguese influence is due to the fact that the language's creators lived on plantations with Portuguese masters, and possibly slaves speaking a Portuguese creole that the masters had brought with them while migrating to Surinam from Brazil. Saramaccan's creators started with an early form of Sranan Tongo and transformed it into a new creole via this Portuguese influx, plus heavy influence from the grammars of Kongo and Gbe.
Saramaccan is divided into three main dialects: the Upper Suriname River dialect and the Lower Suriname River dialect are both spoken by members of the Saramaccan tribe, while the Matawari tribe have their own dialect.
