Nòt Kreyol: Translation of the Preposition “To” indicating motion to a place:
Kreyòl uses “Nan” before the noun indicating the place to express motion to a place. Also, keep in mind that nouns that refer to specified, unique places usually do not need the definite article. For example, I am going to church – M pral legliz; I am going to school – M pral lekòl.

Possessive in Creole
Whose is it? Se pou ki moun?
(Belonging to, pertaining to, indicating possession)
Bato sa-a se pou Jan. Se bato Jan.
Se rad Tipapa. Rad sa-a se pou Tipapa
Notes / Nòt: An easy way to understand and express possession in Haitian Creole is to have the noun referring to what is owned followed by the name of the owner. If a pronoun follows a noun, it is used as a possessive adjective.
Examples: Se lajan/kòb Delòm. Se kòb li – (It’s Delòm’s money. It is his money)
Se chokola Manno ak Wobè. Se chokola yo – It is Manno and Robert’s chocolate. It is their chocolate.

Se liv Joslen. Se liv li – It is Jocelyn’s book. It is his.
Se mallet Jisten. Se malèt li – It is Justin’s suitcase. It is his suitcase.
Konbyen? – How much / How many?
Konbyen rad ou wè nan chanm nan? - How many pieces of cloth do you see in the room ?
M wè yon chemiz (shirt), yon pè pantalon (pants), yon mayo (t-shirt), yon pè soulye (a pair of shoes), de pè sapat (a pair of thongs), yon kravat (tie), de jip (skirt) yon pè chosèt (socks), yon pè tenis (a pair of tennis shoes) epi yon ba (stockings)
Other forms of possession: Asking questions
Pou ki moun kay sa yo ye? Poukiyès kay sa yo ye? Whose are those houses?
Pou ki moun plim sa-a ye? Poukiyès plim sa-a ye? Whose is this pen?
Pou ki moun kreyon sa-a ye? Poukiyès kreyon sa-a ye? Whose is this pencil?

Sa yo se kay leta (kay gouvènman) – These are government houses /buidings
Pouki moun plaj sa yo ye? Poukiyès plaj sa yo ye? Se plaj prive
Whose are these beaches? They are private beaches
