Charles Holloway, a professor of world languages at the University of Louisiana at Monroe, discussed the dying Brulée Spanish dialect of Ascension Parish during the Feb. 2 meeting of the Canary Islanders Heritage Society of Louisiana.

The Brulée Spanish dialect can be traced back to the 1778 Canary Islander, or Isleños, settlers.
