About Sranan Tongo

Sranan Tongo, also known as Surinamese, is the most widely spoken language in Surinam. It was originally the language of the black community there. Although Dutch is taught as the official language in schools in Surinam, Sranan Tongo is the common language, the one which is spoken most often in everyday use and one that is increasingly being used in print. The first official spelling was introduced in the sixties, allowing the language to play a more serious role in the Surinamese community. There’s even a Miffy book in Sranan Tongo.

Sranan Tongo is often confused with Papiamento, although they are two entirely different languages and Papiamento is spoken on the islands of the Dutch Caribbean.

Languages other than Dutch and Sranan Tongo are also spoken in Surinam: the Indo-Surinamese speak Surinamese Hindustani, which is not actually Hindustani but is a regional language known as Bhojpuri which hails from India. The various tribes also have different languages: Saramaccan, Aucan, Aluki, Mataway, and Kwinti. The indigenous inhabitants have their own set of languages: descendants of migrants from Java mainly speak a Javanese creole and there is a large group which is of Chinese origin who speak Hakka and Mandarin.
