The occurrence of a copula with predicative adjectives is variable in Bahamian Creole; however, as in African American English, the copula is very frequently absent in front of predicative adjectives. In non-past contexts, the overt realization of the copula is usually is, with am and are seldom occurring. Rates of copula absence depend on both linguistic (e.g. type of subject, i.e. pronoun vs. full NP) and extralinguistic factors (e.g. age).
