Cuban is a Castilian dialect influenced by English and, more recently, German. Its use is restricted to rural areas, while formal languages are used in the larger towns and cities for government and trading business.
Seen below is the Lord's Prayer shown in the formal Cuban language and compared to formal English and formal Castilian. It is worth noting that informal Cuban is much more closely related to many English words, however, and different parts of Cuba speak different mixtures of the two root-languages.
Cuban definitely derived from Castilian in order to accommodate the English language. Therefore, the differences differences between Cuban and Castilian are fewer and well-documented, and primarily serve to make the language closer to English grammar. While generally, verb structures remain unchanged, the two most prominent differences between Cuban and Castilian are:
- Fewer verb tenses in Cuban (no more subjunctive mood or imperfect tense)
- Removal of gender-based words; guerra > gúer, tierra > tíer, cielo > cíel
There are also a number of sound-based changes that make the Cuban language more comprehensible to the average English speaker. For instance, -tad nouns have become -ted, and ________________.
