Description: 

The language spoken by the slaves that Sutpen brings to Yoknapatawpha is identified by Compson as "the Caribbean-Spanish-French of the Sugar Islands" (30). Better known as the West Indies, the islands of the Caribbean used slave labor to produce most the world's sugar at the time Yoknapatawpha was settled.
