109 + Pidgin Hawaiian Sayings – A Creative and Amazing Language

109 + Pidgin Hawaiian Sayings – A Creative and Amazing Language – A compiled list of some common Pidgin words, phrases and slangs, and have thrown in some Hawaiian slang for good measure. This is certainly not a comprehensive list — Pidgin is truly its own language, and a whole dictionary would be needed to contain all of its unique vocabulary.

The official languages of the state of Hawaii are English and Hawaiian. But there’s also a third unofficial language, which is spoken by many locals in everyday conversation: Hawaii Pidgin English.Pidgin Hawaiian Sayings

Hawaiian Pidgin has evolved from the old plantation days, when immigrants came from different countries to work in Hawaii’s sugar cane fields. First came the Chinese, Japanese, and Portuguese in the mid-1800s. In order to be able to communicate with each other and the English-speaking plantation owners, a common language developed that borrowed words, phrases, intonations, and grammatical structures from these 4 different languages. When the Okinawans, Puerto Ricans, Koreans, and Filipinos started immigrating to Hawaii around 1900, bits of their distinct languages were also thrown into the mix.

Today, you can hear Pidgin being spoken among some locals in informal situations. Pidgin words and phrases are also sometimes used in local advertisements. As a newcomer to Hawaii, you won’t be expected to speak Pidgin to locals (in fact, any attempt to do so will probably be met with strange looks or laughter!). But it can be helpful — and fun, frankly! — to be familiar with these words and expressions when you encounter them.
