Sranan is a creole language spoken as a lingua franca by approximately 300,000 people in Suriname. It was previously called nengre or in Dutch negerengels ("Negro English"). Since this language is shared between the Dutch-, Javanese-, Hindustani-, and Chinese-speaking communities, most Surinamese speak it as a lingua franca, both the Surinamese in Suriname, a former Dutch colony, as well as the immigrants of Surinamese origin in the Netherlands.
