SHORT STORY: Boysie and Crapaud at Coney Island – By Geoff Burrowes

 By Geoff Burrowes

Boysie was tall and thin. He still managed to be very attractive to the girls he met, in spite of having a stumbling knock knee and a pronounced parrot toe. He was also freakishly good at sports, always captaining and winning the games of cricket and football that broke out on nearby Bourda Green. There was no one his equal on the  ping pong table at St Barnabas Church and as far as the tawa game they played under the tall owra tree, with owra seeds he had no match.

UYANESE oNLINEHis good buddy Crapaud was as short as Boysie was tall. and instead of being thin he was corpulent. He had “short foot” so he had to almost skip to keep up with Boysie when they were out walking. He was an absolute klutz when it came to sport of any kind but Boysie and the”gang” loved having him around because he was clever, side-splittingly funny and it didn’t pay to tan’lize him as by the time your shot hit home he would “pelt a shot” twice as insulting and four times as funny.          Continue reading

GUYANA: The Cultural Significance of ‘Gyaaf’: Implications for the Diaspora – By Lear Matthews

By Lear Matthews

  • Give me de gyaaf nuh man…Ah cyant wait to hear (Anonymous)

With the passage of time cultural heritage and customs among diasporans become a casualty of new acculturative experiences as they assimilate into societies such as Canada, USA and the UK, Aka host countries. Nonetheless even as they embrace new social institutional norms, retaining traditional culturally familiar modes of communication couched in reminiscing past experience and practices, is essential to adaptation in their new home. This article seeks to stimulate thinking about the way thoughts, information and messages are transmitted among people living outside their country of origin.

The word “Gyaaf”or “Geaaf” (local dialect) evokes a sense of identity and recognition among Guyanese. It is a unique style of verbal communication covering a range of topics, characterized by animated, exaggerated articulation of facts, colorful stories or incidents often embellished. According to Guyanese Journalist and Folklorist Ovid Abrams the term refers to an informal chat or entertaining conversation.
