Name

I recorded this as 'Pidgin Hawaiian' rather than 'Hawaiian, Pidgin' in the abc field of the metadata template because it's not a form of the Hawaiian language, any more than English is a variety of Latin. The words of Pidgin Hawaiian mainly came from Hawaiian, but not the overall structure. John Stephenson 15:01, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
