I'm somewhat a fan of Papiamentu, so I was delighted to see it mentioned. I
have "Papiamentu Textbook" by E.R. Goilo (sometimes available from
abebooks.com) and Betty Ratzlaff's very good English/Papiamentu Dictionary.
Also Elis Juliana's "Haiku in Papiamentu" which is still in print.
Papiamentu looks good on paper. I have not heard many recordings of it being
spoken; the ones I heard were hard to follow.
