Bungi Creole

Bungi Creole

Bungi (also Bungee, Bungie, Bungay, or the Red River Dialect) is a creole of Scottish English strongly influenced by Orcadian, Gaelic, Cree and Ojibwe, and spoken by the Red River M├ętis in present-day Manitoba, Canada.

Bungi has been categorized as a post-creole, with the distinctive features of the language gradually abandoned by successive generations of speakers in favour of standard Canadian English. Today the creole mostly survives in the speech of a few elders, and the use of non-standard pronunciations and terminology by a wider population.
