Language

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
Nuestre Padre
que estás en los cieles,
santificado es tu nombre,
venga tu rein,
hágase tu volunted,
en lo tíer como en lo cíel.
Danos hoy lo pan de este día
y perdona nuestres deudes
como nosotros perdonamos nuestres deudores;
y no nos dejes caer en al tentacion
sino que líbranos del malo.
Tuyo es lo Rein,
lo Poder, y lo Glorie
por Siempre.
Amen.

Castilian
Padre Nuestro
que estás en los cielos,
santificado sea tu nombre,
venga tu reino,
hágase tu voluntad
en la tierra como en el cielo.
Danos hoy el pan de este día,
y perdona nuestras deudas
como nosotros perdonamos nuestros deudores
y no nos dejes caer en al tentación
sino que líbranos del malo.
Tuyo es el Reino,
el Poder, y la Gloria
por Siempre.
Amen.

English
Our Father
who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name,
thy kingdom come,
thy will be done
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread;
and forgive us our debts
as we forgive our debtors;
.
and lead us not into temptation,
.
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the Kingdom,
and the Power, and the Glory
forever and ever.
Amen.

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 ________________.
