Welcome to my pidgin language page.
Now here in Hawai’i our main language is English
But like anywhere else we have other languages too.
The locals favorite choice of speaking, around friends and family
is pidgin...broken English...
Now if I was to say all this in pidgin it would sound like this
but see, we all speak it a little differently...

Howzit, braddah...come cruise, check’um out...
Hea in Hawai’i nei, we speak um any kine way
get choke kine ways fo’ talk um.
Ho, da kine, ev’rywan talk la’dis.

Please don’t come to Hawai’i and use this language, just any where, any time
Some people, locals, take offense hearing... Haoles.. speak it...Mahalos!!
