Breton, Raymond

Breton, Raymond a French Dominican, was born at Beaune in 1609, went to American 1635, and spent many years as a missionary among the Antilles or Caribbee Islands. After his return he composed a Dictionary of the language, and a Grammar of the same, also a Catechism (Auxerre, 1625). The great sterility of the language, and its variety (for the young are said to speak a different dialect from the old, and males from females), must have added incredibly to the labor. Breton died in 1679. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v.
