St. Lucian Creole (Kweyol) is a variety of Caribbean French- lexicon Creole spoken by a significant majority of the population of the state of St. Lucia in the Windward group of the Lesser Antilles.

A distinctive characteristic of this Kweyol-English/English-Kweyol dictionary is the manner in which Mondesir’s glosses treat St. Lucian and English on an equal footing. Mondesir does not record only the literal and concrete levels of meaning; he includes in his entries the fullness of the figurative value of the items, illustrating them with a rich provision of sample sentences and expressions. On a technical level, the examples in the dictionary also offer valuable data for those interested in the syntax of the language.
