Ah Memba Wen - Paat 2

Ah memba wen Ah yoostu mek wreet fahn tailit paypa; now Ah dayr noh ways eevn wan singl pees!
Ah memba wen Shain Aiy Gyal "lip laik liva ahn shee waahn lipstik" bot now … no need, sayka faysmaas di kova lip!


Ah memba wen if yu doz laik "socially distant" yuself, dehn mi waahn sen yu fi si saikalajis; now, ih beta yoo deh da Toleedo ahn mee deh da Korozaal---nobadi feel "dis."


Ah memba wen if yu mi-di kaaf, nof pipl tel yu bowt tek honi ahn laim ahn tingz a dat mata. Now, wan lee kaaf, ahn pipl skyata!


Ah memba wen Faada doz beg wi kohn da Choch, dat yu sarows noh wahn laas; now Faada seh pray fahn hoahn ahn laiv schreem Maas.


Ah memba wen di "bump" mi rifer tu wahn daans er sohnbadi weh kech beli; now da di nyoo hanshayk. Ah memba da werk wen HR doz wach mi foni wen Ah waip mi han afta Ah mi greet kostomaz; now HR manaja di rosh fi gi mi hanzitaiza!


Ah memba wen di Hapi Bertday sang doz sing jos fi sohnbadi bertday; now da tee-dina-tee wi di sing bertday sang az wi wash wi han.


Ah memba wen pipl doz jreem bowt oan nais hows ahn kaa; now da ventilayta di star! (bai Silvaana Udz)

Kriol is the language spoken by many Belizeans, especially the Creole people of Belize. Although it is often perceived as a dialect of English, it is indeed it's own language with grammar and spelling rules. The National Kriol Council of Belize was created to promote the culture and language of the Kriol people of Belize, as well as harmony among all the ethnic groups of Belize. Please visit the website of the National Kriol Council of Belize for lots of good information about the Kriol language and the Creole people.


The Kriol Council has been kind enough to send us the weekly "Weh Wi Ga Fi Seh" column that is usually published in the Reporter.
