Back in 2007 - 2009, I would watch this ALL THE TIME. Also, despite having watched this so many times… I never caught her shirt saying, “TITA WOULD GO” and now I’m on the floor. Hahahaha

From Video: Hawaiian Creole, called Pidgin, is a language with a rich history and structure that is misunderstood by many who not only hear it but speak it as well. Local celebrity Tita explains it all for an audience at a gender illusionist beauty pagent.

anonymous asked:

What is it about Hawaiian that you like so much?

I love the grammar of Polynesian, and I love the phonology of Hawaiian the best of all the Polynesian languages. Grammatically, they’re all quite similar, but Hawaiian really hits the sweet spot. LOVE that language. Wish I could take classes in it, but generally there are only classes on Hawaiian in Hawai’i. :(
