  'Tornet' ("thunder'='damn'), 'fi-fi narge' (pi-pi d'angie'= "angel 'rain' "), "caca-polle" rum ("bad/low quality" rum), and 'mamaguy' (from the Spanish 'maman el gallo', used in Trinidadian English ONLY! [broadly speaking and in Trinidad only!! :--)>] "to praise someone' tongue-in-cheek' (falsely) for favors", and finally 'dasheen'=de Chine="from China" =taro=Colocasia esculenta (THERE is the aroid connection to this drivel!!!)!   We have our Patois in Trinidad that we must deal with.
