This video explains grammatical structure of pidgin, and how versatile one specific word is..."Wot".

Funny but teaches you in a way that you won't even realize you are being taught.

Thanks to Tita for teaching us.

You would enjoy hearing "Little Red Riding Hood" in pidgin. I heard a man perform it at a Christmass event in Waialua,Oahu, when I was young kid (9). It was hillarious and I would love to find a recording of it. Does anyone know if one exists?

Too bad. Maybe get old Boogah Boogah or Rap Replinger stuff somewhere. But K.K. Kaumanua was the one I grew up with too. Alos sometimes Sterling Mossman would tell jokes in Pidgin too.

No'eau, eia au he mea pa'ani wale nō.

I think the CD sounds a little forced too, but when I heard it as a kid I remember it as being done pretty well. I don't remember any of my friends making fun of it anyway. I am just happy to hear those stories again, but if you do hear a better one let us (me) know :)

There are a lot of pidgin-speaking entertainers who over do it, but I have heard several distinct variations of pidgin that might be from a certain locale, or just be associated with a person's enthusiasm for the mother tongue. On top of that, a dozen members of a single family may speak pidgin differently, some of them without a trace of the rhythm, while others are unintelligible to us mainlanders.
I love it all, but choose not to speak it because it's not my language.

The decision I have made is to not check out the lesson, as this dialect of English should be reserved for Hawaiians or Hawaiians at heart who can have conversations with people wherever they are and be understood. For me, I don't think anyone over here would be able to comprehend what I would say. I can understand some of it but no can speak it dat maika'i. Das okay.

He kehau ho'oma'ema'e ke aloha.

This is a link to the Honolulu Advertiser blog topic on pidgeon English posted in yesterday's paper. I'm not sure if anyone cares, but this may add some insight to how the language is viewed in Hawaii.

BTW the Honolulu Advertiser has an excellent blog section. The UH sports blog regularly gets about 500 post a day! Of course I never read or post while I'm at work.
