Zachary Richard: American Singer / Songwriter

Cajun French
According to the online Encyclopedia of Cajun Culture, Cajun French is a linguistic gumbo of Acadian French, Creole French, standard 19th-century French, and English, with influences from African, Native American, and Spanish terms. Despite some surface differences and regional idioms, Cajuns are able to communicate easily with Acadians from Quebec, France, and other Francophone lands. Says Cajun musician and poet, Zachary Richard, “It’s about as different as British English is from American English.”
