Language Discovered

A  L  O  H  A !
I Speak Pidgin by Frank DeLima on Grooveshark

Here in Hawaii,
all the newcomers
and the Hawaiians
developed a unique language
for working class communication
Hawaii Creole English, HCE,

We call it Pidgin.

I will never speak like a native speaker

of Pidgin, but I (mostly) understand

and use Pidgin proudly.

If you read my book

(see the top of this page,

there on the right)

you already know Pidgin.



that Hawaii's Deaf 

also developed their own

unique and practical 

Hawaii Sign Language


Older members of Hawaii's

Deaf community

recently brought this language

to the attention of the Linguistics

Department at University Of Hawaii

who consider this a true, unique language

that will now be documented

before it disappears.

This is the biggest discovery

in the linguistics community in

Some Time!

Headlines include:

""Nearly lost language discovered in Hawai'i "

Check it out,
and to hear Hawaiian Pidgin
