RULES FOR PIDGIN: Tourists may not speak it (or ull get ur ass kicked)
Local moks, flips, and japs may speak it.
Local haoles may speak it unaccented.
Ho brah! you see me kick dat one haole toris' ass dat try tok to me pidgin? man he shoulda see dat' shit coming brah! he stay 'tinking he da kine!
from what if first started off from, it transformed into something more grammatical, and with an accent of its own. Haoles have a hard time understanding, not just because we use words from another language, and because of the accent, but also because our sentencing is set up differently. the order in which we say sentences isn't english grammer format, it's more of a japanese, hawaiian, filipino format, haha.
spoken by locals of hawaii of any racial background, hawaiian, filipino, japanese, haole, etc; also spoken with many different degrees of pidginism, depending on what area of hawaii one may be in.
so, if get stupid haoles who think locals to hawaii is stupid cause we no speak proper english, then you're the ignorant fools, cause our pidgin language is more complex than your "proper english."
local style: brah, when we going go to the store? i like get one musubi already!"
