  2. Cab a.k.a. Garifuna Language: Garifuna is a member of the Arawakan language family albeit an atypical one since, 1 it is spoken outside of the Arawakan language area which is confined to the northern parts of South America, and 2 because it contains an unusually high number of loanwords, from both Carib and a number of European languages, attesting to an extremely tumultuous past involving warfare, migration and colonization. The language was once confined to the Antillean island of St. Vincent and Dominica, but due to twists of fate its speakers landed on Mainland Honduras from where the language has since spread south to Nicaragua and north to Guatemala and Belize. In later years a large number of Garifuna people has settled in a great number of larger US cities, presumably as part of a more general pattern of north bound migration.
