The aim of this article is to highlight the common geo-linguistic structure of Caribbean creole languages, to represent the diffusion of these various creoles throughout the region, and to propose a modelization of Caribbean creole spaces and spatial dynamics. These dynamics of creation and destruction, expansion (creolization) and withdrawal (de-creolization), at the local and regional scale alike, generated a creolophone Caribbean, which encompasses over 14 million speakers in various territories characterized by distinct features. © Belin.
