Item Summary

Title:Da Kine Talk: From Pidgin to Standard English in Hawaii
Authors:Carr, Elizabeth Ball
Keywords:LANGUAGE ARTS & DISCIPLINES / Linguistics / General
Date Issued:1972
Publisher:Honolulu: University of Hawaii Press
Description:Hawaii is without parallel as a crossroads where languages of East and West have met and interacted. The varieties of English (including neo-pidgin) heard in the Islands today attest to this linguistic and cultural encounter.

"Da kine talk" is the Island term for the most popular of the colorful dialectal forms--speech that captures the flavor of Hawaii's multiracial community and reflects the successes (and failures) of immigrants from both East and West in learning to communicate in English.
