    Actually Wayne, to be pedantic, they don't consider themselves "Gilbertese" [a convoluted European imperial term], but instead, I-Kiribati or associated language Te taetae ni Kiribati.......and goes back for ages.

    ^Yes 'Gilbertese' is a tounge-in-cheek reference used by most Pacific Islander these days ... mainly to piss the i-kiribati off as they are in large part a very difficult people

    Kinda like calling the Rotuman's 'biscuits' ... all though that is more in jest but will fire up some of the old coonts

    Oh and thank you for the obviously very learned reminder

    Hmmm, depending on how you've transliterated it, "tae" could be "shit", so I translate that as "The shit of Kiribati"

    Nokon kan te butae arei takatiti ion te pige. Go eat the shit thats washing up on the beach
