Berbice Creole Dutch is a highly endangered creole language spoken on the coast of Guyana. After the conquest of English Guyana by the Dutch in 1664, and the subsequentpeace treaty in which the English handed it over in exchange for New Amsterdam, the coastal areas got under Dutch cultural influence. However, this influence was rather slight, and did not reach much further than the town of Berbice. When the colony was reconquered by the British in Napoleaontic times, and split up in Dutch and British parts after the Vienna Congress, the Berbice slaves kept speaking it among themselves, until the language came in decay in the 20th century. As of 1993 there were some 4 or 5 elderly speakers of the language, although other sources report tens of speakers. ...more on Wikipedia about "Berbice Creole Dutch"

Chinook Jargon was a trade language (or pidgin) of the Pacific Northwest, which spread quickly up the West Coast from Oregon, through Washington, British Columbia, and as far as Alaska. It is related to, but not the same as the indigenous language of the Chinook people, upon which much of its vocabulary is based. Most books written in English still use the term Chinook Jargon, but today the term Chinook Wawa is preferred by linguists working with the preservation of a creolized form of the language used in Grand Ronde, Oregon. Historical speakers did not use that name, however, but rather "the Wawa" or "Lelang" (from Fr. la langue, the tongue), although the name for the Jargon varied throughout the territory in which it was used, e.g. skokum hiyu in the Boston bar- Lytton area of the Fraser Canyon, or in many areas simply just "the old trade language". ...more on Wikipedia about "Chinook Jargon"
