Friends of the NS Library Dotty Nakea Memorial Speaker Program

And Princeville Public Library proudly present

“How For Talk”:  Pidgin English on Kaua’i

Maka’ala Ka/aumoana, Hob Osterlund & Sandy “Tita” Swift

“Pidgin” is the language of islands all over the world.  Hawaii’s version of pidgin includes words from the Hawaiian, Japanese, Portuguese, Chinese, Filipino and English languages. It’s a streamlined form of communication, understood and spoken by locals, full of humor and nuance. Visitors and new residents sometimes confuse pidgin with bad English and unconsciously condescend to it. In this talk, attendees will have a chance to better understand pidgin, in all its glory.

This Free event is sponsored by the Friends of the North Shore Library at Princeville as part of the Dotty Nakea Memorial Speaker Program and by the Princeville Public Library.

To request a sign language interpreter, please call the Princeville Public Library (826-4310) at least 2 weeks prior to the program.

The views expressed in this presentation are those of the speaker and do not constitute an endorsement by the Hawaii State Public Library System, the Princeville Public Library or the Friends of the North Shore Library at Princeville.
