Today in Hawaii
          For the past few
years, the Hawaii state
government has been try-
ing to launch a superferry
that would transport cars
and people between the
islands of Maui, Oahu, and
Kauai. This past August,
the multimillion dollar Ha-
waii Superferry made its
first and last voyage, selling
inter-island tickets for only
five dollars in lieu of its
grand opening. Unfortu-
nately, The Hawaii Super-
ferry was deemed an envi-
ronmental threat and was
canceled by the Hawaii
Supreme Court who ruled
that an environmental as-
sessment would be neces-         superferry met strong opposition from some of the natives. On the island of
sary before the superferry       Kauai, the superferry was greeted by legions of belligerent mokes, (see vocabulary
could sail again. In addi-       section on page 7 if you don’t know what a moke is) who paddled surfboards in
                                 front of the gigantic vessel to prevent it from entering the harbor. The environ-
tion to legal problems, the
                                 mental assessment is still underway and the return of superferry is uncertain.

Plenty Pidgin
 Pidg-in (‘pi-jən) – noun. any simplified or broken form of a language, esp. when used for communication be-
tween speakers of different languages.
 Pidgin English crafted through the wide range of cultures that settled in Hawaii during the late 1800s and early
1900s. The Hawaiian, Japanese, Chinese, Filipino, Portugese, etc languages all contributed their fair share to
modifying the English language and producing what is now known as Pidgin English.
 Here are a few words and phrases from pidgin English, the most commonly spoken language of the Hawaiian
Islands.

 Moke – noun. Very large, local guy, who most people don’t mess with.
         Ex: Eh brah, no mess wit dat moke, he goin give you dirty lickens
         Translation: Don’t mess with that behemoth of a man, or else you might
get beat up.

 Shoots – interjection. An expression of confirmation; synonymous with ok
         Ex: speaker 1: Eh, we go beach. Speaker 2: Shoots!
         Translation: speaker 1: Let’s go to the beach. Speaker 2: Ok! That’s a
great idea.

Choke – adj. Plenty, a lot.
     Ex: Ho, get choke asian people at UCI.
     Translation: Wow, there are a lot of Asians at UCI.

Pau – verb. Finished; done
       Ex: You almost pau?
       Translation: Are you almost done?
