Description:
Caribbean Hindustani is a dialect of Bhojpuri spoken in Suriname, Guyana, and Trinidad and Tobago. These three countries put an adjective before the name of the language, so that the local language variant is known for instance as "Sarnami Hindoestani" in Suriname. Most people still call the language "Hindustani".

After Dutch, Sarnami Hindustani is the most widely spoken language of Suriname. The language is spoken by the descendants of emigrants from the current Indian states of Uttar Pradesh and Bihar, they are in Suriname and the Netherlands known as the Hindoestanen. Because the predominance of Bhojpuri speaking emigrants, the Caribbean Hindustani and Sarnami Hindoestani are most influenced by Bhojpuri and other Bihari varieties. The Hindoestanen are the largest ethnic group in Suriname, and Indian culture in general has a major role.

Variants

The Caribbean Hindustani in neighboring Guyana, also known as the Aili Gaili is spoken only by a few older members of the more than half one million Indian Guyanese.

The variant spoken in Trinidad and Tobago is known as Trinidad Bhojpuri in 1996 and was spoken by 15,633 people.
