Caribbean Culture: DIALECT LEXICON – by Dave Martins + Videos

DIALECT LEXICON by Dave Martins- Credits Stabroek News

Dave Martins

Among the many things I discovered after migrating to Toronto in the late 1950s was the value of the Guyanese dialect I had grown up with; something in fact that I had been made to feel ashamed of in my homeland, a condition not unique to me. In Canada, in passing conversation with Canadians, and particularly in later years at a university journalism course, I had learned, in linguistic studies, that our dialect chat was a vibrant, reasoned means of communication, and indeed, in many social encounters, it was often the best way for Guyanese to communicate.      Continue reading

CARTOONS by Charles Schulz – Charlie Brown series

Cartoonists are often informers, philosophers, comedians and more.  The creator of the much loved Charlie Brown series was all of these and more. In a way, he was the Shakespeare of his day who had wonderful insights into the ‘Human Spirit’ and presented them to his readers for what they were worth. They proved to be worth a lot and helped people make adjustments to their lives and functions for the better.

Here are several thought provoking examples.

Guyana’s Rupununi: Which of us hasn’t wanted to be a cowboy? – By Geoff Burrowes

Ole time ‘tory or livin’ the dream …Which of us hasn’t wanted to be a cowboy or fireman?

By Geoff Burrowes

The beach house perched on tall stilts on the Buxton foreshore. The party was hot and heavy. The rum was rich and dark. Old timers will remember it fondly – it wasn’t from Bookers or Sandbach Parker but was distilled in Robb St by a maverick, Tommy Houston. It caused a warm glow when it hit the stomach and conversation flowed freely.

‘You don’t have to go all the way to Australia. Rupununi Development are looking for staff!’ Clive Bettencourt’s dad was Chairman of Rupununi Development and Monday morning I went to see him. He knew my Dad and I left his office with a job offer. That was how business was done in those days.     Continue reading

The Mighty Sparrow is a Caribbean Institution! – By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine + Music Playlist

Dr. Slinger Francisco: The Mighty Sparrow is a Caribbean Institution!

By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

There was a string of hits that lasted several decades. In 1954, he sang ‘The Parrot and the Monkey’ to be followed by ‘Jean and Dinah’ and by 1963 he had shaken up the Caribbean with ‘Dan is the Man in the Van’ and ‘Village Ram,’ among others.

The young man was Slinger Francisco, who became the Little Sparrow and later the Mighty Sparrow. His multitude of fans affectionately call him ‘The Birdie’. In his seventy-year career, very few can come close to Sparrow in unraveling the sociology of the Caribbean.     Continue reading

Arwa Mahdawi | The Guardian UK

Let me tell you a few deplorable things that happened in the United States of America this weekend. Nearly 43 million people woke up in poverty in the richest country in the world.
