Merico or Americo-Liberian (or the informal colloquial name "American") is an English-based creole language spoken until recently in Liberia by Americo-Liberians, descendants of the Settlers, freed slaves and African-Americans who emigrated from the Southern US between 1819 and 1860. It is distinguished from Liberian Kreyol language and from Kru, and may be connected to Gullah and Jamaican Creole.
The original Settlers numbered 19,000 in 1860. By 1975 the language was partly decreolized, restricted to informal settings, and deprecated even by its speakers.
