54. Yardie gyal - April 16, 2008

Coolie baboo is used in Jamaica but very rarely as it somewhat offensive.

I am surprised that so many of the Indian relation names are intact. Indians in India use Bua for paternal aunt, Mama for maternal uncle, Bhabi for brother’s wife, etc.

I am not surprised, however, by how many of the words are in common with Jamaica: obeah, battie, wha mek, etc.

And for those who don’t know- Liberty Avenue is a street in Queens. The heart of the Indo-Guyanese neighborhood in New York. Lots of good things to eat!

Chanchy – the white stuff, dat secretes under the skin of an uncircumcised tallywally. Men doing time in prisons where cheese was not served would rub the putrid smelling secretion on there bread and eat it.
As the story goes borapork was doing time at Sibley Hall Mazaruni. Near the end of his tenth year of his forced residency, he was placed in a cell with a young man who told bp several times that he had cheese and bread with his watered down coffee. Bp told his cell mate that the institution never served cheese and the palawala fellow said that he got the cheese from his dick. Want a piece of my bread? He said to bp, Chanchy on bread is palatabe. Bp tried the concoction and just like the small island jail bird he mouth gat white-corners – cajh.

Good job! Can I suggest that you consider posting some of the local proverbial expressions. I must admit, that while I understand the language, I avoid its usage and find extreme difficulty reading it. One of the proverb that readily comes to my mind and reminds me of my mother (may God rest her soul) is – If you eat fire, you must shit coal.

DACTA SWEE - January 24, 2012

Hey, this is really cool. I’m actually doing some research for a specialised dictionary to be called Guyanese Medical Dictionary. It;s good that we talking about our language and keeping it going. And you’re right, there’s no standard orthography, so I’m hoping to use one that was proposed way back when, and modify it (which has already been done in the 90s). Example:

bong belii n. constipation

The “o” is pronounced as the “u” in “dung”; and double “i’s” as “e” in “eat”.

169. Mrs P. Carroll - October 17, 2011

some of your words are spelled wrong, and further more i feel as though you are quite insulting to people who are born in Guyana.
Our english is a broken english and perhaps mixed with many different people who are speaking english as they know it. who really knows where our speech and knowledge of english came from. We were govern by the british and they certainly didn’t speak english like that…… s…o…o so, Where did this speech of english came from Miss Moonsammy?

A good friend of mine, Maurice B. #6647 (May God Bless His Soul) introduced me to a beautiful East Indian lady when we were stationed at Reliance Police Station, Canje. The night before I worked ‘undercover’ she cooked aloo paratha. The morning I got up and was readying myself to report for duty when I saw her holding something under her right arm-pit. I asked what she had under her arm and she told me it was the roti she made for me and dat she warming it up because the rain fell and wet-up the fire wood.

I would have eaten the victual but when I was about to bite a piece off something touch me lips. Man I pulled brakes and made an inspection. What I saw frightened me, the hair from her arm pit stuck to the Indian bread and had formed on it as though a mustache. Man, did I take off down the road on my ticker (SA).

When I told Maurice what had occurred he said that I should remember the adage, ‘when you’re single and they – BGPF post you to Barbice you either get married, get mad, an then them put in that specific hospital in Canje or send you back to your place of origin in a wooden box with six silver handles. But all she was doing was putting a KNACK pun you so that you marry she. Because you din eat the morsel you gon either dead or get mad. Man, I was lucky, one week after the incident I was transferred ‘under arms’ to ‘A’ Division. Zander, is weh you put me cutlass?

At our police training school on Camp Road. July 1960 our first month in the class room.
Sgt. Walcott, ‘can anyone define the difference between burglary and buggery?’ An eerie silence took over a once noisy class room. Then he voiced the answers.
Burglary is when you break and enter.
Buggery is when you enter and break.
And loud laughter permeated the silence.

Kanwah eyes – cross eyes – cock eyes, when you are standing right in front of the woman who is speaking to you and the projection of her eyes is directed towards your friend standing ten feet to your left.

Goady entutembah – elephantiasis. Anybody out deh memba a man called ‘Clarence,’ he used to hang out pon Sussex Street wharf but lived on James Street, Albouystown. Boy o Boy, his testicles were so enlarged that dem seh he had to wear a specially sewn pair of pants cause the gigantic, growing flesh weighed about seventy pounds. He used to pee he pants cause he had an inny lolo.
It took him nearly 40 minutes to walk from Lombard Street to Saffon Street on Sussex Street.
Clarence denied himself surgery because the doctors at PHG told him that after the operation he would have had to pee like a woman.

Pissy Mule – a male in his late teens, still peeing he bed anytime he sleeps on it.

Lebbeh lip – disfigurement of the lower lip caused by the constant sucking of fingers especially the thumb. OR the natural thickness of lips by some Guyanese whose descent is African. Saw some of them in Lagos, Nigeria and never thought dem things could have adorned human faces. I always thought about losing my nose if one of their women tried to kiss me.

Pork chop lips that is when de husband, de boy friend or de significant other attempts to rearrange the contours of dem woman friends’ lips with biffs, baffs and buffs and dem de lips swell-up like puffer fish. Now she only having beef broth for two weeks.
If my mudda were alive I would have prompted her to tell alyu some stories.

Ramjit – East Indian man.
Choke and Rob – Black man, like me.

178. DACTA SWEE - January 26, 2012

DACTA SWEE - January 27, 2012

The flesh is what is ‘dead.’ The soul is everlasting. One ask God to bless the soul as it ascends into Heaven or to some other place during its celestial journey, not the expired flesh wherever it may be interred, or become ashes or rather in an Asian country where vultures eat the flesh of their dead. Only old
Guyanese people make the statement, which you put forth.

Deh Bad, like when nutin yuh do go right to help yuh out. As a young copper I met a Quli man who lived obliquely opposite Vigilance Police Station, in Friendship ECD where I had a bed in the barrack room. Every time I worked the 12:00 to 8:00 night shift the man would come over to the station to play two man card games and dominoes. Sgt. Heeralall gave him permission. So one day he said to me, ‘ting deh bad with me, a doan know who to turn to. I feel like killing meself.’ Right away me an he walked to de sarge house an he tell de sarge exactly what he told me. Sarge walk he home. One o’clock in the afternoon sarge woke me up from my peaceful slumber and told me to take de man to see de chinee dacta in Buxton.

I took him to see the dacta and he greeted the patient and was escorting him to a room. The fried asked me to sit outside but the patient insisted dat I company he in the room. Fried agreed. He said to the doc ‘ting deh bad wit me cause I can’t make love to me wife an she en playing hard to get.

Doc ask de patient to explain the reason he could not make love to his wife. Now he start crying an he seh, ‘a can’t do she from the front, she gat gonorrhoea. Me can’t go through the back door, she gat diarrhoea an she can,t give me a mouth job cause she gat pyria.’ So de dacta asked, ‘why on earth are you living with dat no good woman?’ And the patient began laughing hysterically and stated, ‘she gat worms and I love fishing.’

Man, I left the patient an de doc in the room an went straight to the rum shop, cause I was eyeing up the birdie cause she used to pout her mouth an lick her lips each time she saw me. Now ting deh bad wit me.

183. DACTA SWEE - January 26, 2012

Lie like skyte: As a fifteen year old rising star, I decided to tackle a beautiful twenty year old East Indian miss who worked at miss Chan cakeshop on Wellington Street adjacent to metropole theatre.
She told me she was a virgin and she would only have sex wit me after we were married. So I began sweet talking the beauty cause all I was interested in was to knack the pata and move on and look fuh anadah beauty. To mek lang story short she fall fuh me soor an we went to ‘lovers lane,’ the six furlong pole at Durban Park.
So in the heat of passion she gave in. Now me happy, de cherry is mine and as soon a put it inside, she hold me tight, tight, tight an just as me start to break she seh, ‘don’t break in me, a does get ketch quick.’ So now me a tow she back to she house an me ask she why she tell me she was one virgin an she seh, ‘you the first piece of black pudding I ever had an I like de romp we had, so we turn back an start at the five furlong pole. The rains came an drench ah we dese. But we happy. Ten months later me get summons fuh chile support an when de judge see de baby he jump back in he chair an start to laugh an seh, ‘sorry, miss S I have to dismiss this petition de baby en black.’ Man o man when I see the colour, the eyes, an hair of the chile, me also got a surprise cause the Indian beauty wanted de chinee chile to call me DADDY.
Four years later I saw she, the lil boy and a fry eating in a Chinee restaurant on Lapenitence Road and the boy was eating he food with chop sticks and talkin a language I did not comprehend. When we eyes meet she wink pon me an a gentle smile enveloped her beautiful face so I walked across to her table to reintroduce meself an she seh, ‘gwan me nah know you,’ an de fry a watch me wit bad intentions an me show she me badge an id card an she seh, ‘sorry sir, de police already ketch dem people dat break in we house.’ I told her I was stationed at Providence.’ An by now we all know what happened. An afta dat me a sing ‘Dil Deke Dekho.’

Hey! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
