November Theme--Books

Pidgin is considered Hawaiian English. Its origin is from the plantation workers who came to Hawaii in the 19th century. Pidgin has Chinese, Japanese, Portuguese and other influences.

I don't personally speak it, but I understand some of it--and I really like to hear it spoken!

Please take the time to see *wussup* with the other city bloggers around the world.

I must say this is an interesting book that looks good enough to read. Neat theme day post.

I forgot it was theme day. Duh. So I found a few of the books I wrote and posted pictures of them. A kind of collage of my stuff.

It would be very interesting to read the Bible in Hawaiian English...first time I've ever heard the Holy Bible referred to as Da Jesus Book!

I love listening to pidgin too - though sadly I only ever get to hear it if there are TV travel programmes featuring places where it is spoken. It looks really funny written down.

So would "wussup" be Pidgin for "what is up"?

The greek scriptures in Pidgin...very interesting! I need to read one first in German before learning Pidgin =D

You chose a great book of the greatest man who ever lived! Happy theme day!

An excellent selection for Theme Day! I love that the "Good Book" is presented as "The Jesus Book!" How cool is that!

I didn't know pidgin was spoken in Hawaii. I knew of other places in the Pacific that spoke it. So from your book I take it that it is still spoken.

Interesting choice. I didn't know the book had been translated into pidgin.

I remember pidgin being spoken the last time I was in Hawaii ... There are many similar examples elsewhere as well. For example, Spanglish in the mainland.

Hi Kuanyin! Back to the Blogosphere to visit this wonderful blog! And this time to be greeted with Halloween and the New Testament. What a mix... ;)
Loved to see the group picture. Is that you playing the red devil? ;))
Meanwhile Blogtrotter is now strolling somewhere around the Holy See of Echmiadzin. Not so exciting, I accept... ;)
Hope you enjoy and have a great Sunday!
