Ceylon Portuguese–Dutch Creole
SRI LANKA INDO-PORTUGUESE, CEYLONESE PORTUGUESE CREOLE or SRI LANKAN PORTUGUESE CREOLE (SLPC) is a language spoken in Sri Lanka . While the predominant languages of the island are Sinhala and Tamil , the interaction of the Portuguese and the Sri Lankans led to the evolution of a new language, Sri Lanka Portuguese Creole (SLPC), which flourished as a lingua franca on the island for over 350 years (16th to mid 19th centuries). SLPC continues to be spoken by an unknown, extremely small population. All speakers of SLPC are members of the Burgher community: descendents of the Portuguese and Dutch who founded families in Sri Lanka. Europeans , Eurasians , and Burghers account for 0.2% of the Sri Lankan population. Though only a small group of people actually continue to speak SLPC, Portuguese cultural traditions are still in wide practice by many Sri Lankans who are neither of Portuguese descent nor Roman Catholics

Saramaccan Language
SARAMACCAN (autonym : Saamáka) is a creole language spoken by about 58,000 ethnic African people near the Saramacca and upper Suriname River , as well as in the capital Paramaribo , in Suriname (formerly also known as Dutch Guiana ), 25,000 in French Guiana , and 8,000 in the Netherlands. It has three main dialects. The speakers are mostly descendants of fugitive slaves who were native to West and Central Africa ; they form a group called Saamacca, also spelled Saramaka . Linguists consider Saramaccan notable because it is based on two European source languages, English (30%) and Portuguese (20%), and various West and Central African languages (50%) but diverges considerably from all of these. The African component accounts for about 50% once ritual use is taken into account, the highest percentage in the Americas
