Geographical distribution of Bungee

Bungi (also Bungee, Bungie, Bungay, or the Red River Dialect) is a creole of Scottish English strongly influenced by Orcadian, Gaelic, Cree and Ojibwe,[1] and spoken by the Red River Métis in present-day Manitoba, Canada.

Bungi has been categorized as a post-creole,[2] 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.


Bungee language Name


The name derives from either Ojibwe: bangii, or Cree: pahkī, both words signifying “a little bit” in English. In addition to describing the language, Bungi can refer to First Nations persons generally, or those with mixed European and First Nations ancestry (regardless of perceived cultural affiliation).[3] In these colloquial uses the term may have mildly pejorative connotations, even when used by speakers to describe themselves.[4]


Bungee language Description


The lexicon is mostly English with words from Cree and Ojibwa interspersed throughout.


Bungee language Social context


Many speakers in Blain’s studies were ashamed to speak the dialect as the speech community members were discriminated against by other groups.

The major difference with other dialects is in the phonology (sound system & pronunciation). Voice quality differences are noticeably apparent.


Bungee language Scholarship

The main linguistic documentation of this dialect lies within Blain (1987, 1989) and Walter (1969–1970).
