Question to viewers: How to transcribe Kriol

Over the years we have consistently received comments from viewers/readers expressing their difficulty with our transcriptions of certain quotes in stories in which the speakers use Kriol. The common complaint is that such transcriptions are difficult—if not impossible—to read. The other side is that putting broad Kriol into proper English destroys all the flavour of the quote. At this point we welcome more comments from viewers/readers on how they believe the issue should be dealt with. Please use the website contact form on the “Contact Us” tab at the top of the page.

Viewers please note: This Internet newscast is a verbatim transcript of our evening television newscast. Where speakers use Kriol, we attempt to faithfully reproduce the quotes using a standard spelling system.
