Example 1384

Bahamian Creole

Donald for Jane.
Donald is Jane's [husband/son].

Such phrases appear to be restricted in Bahamian Creole to contexts expressing relationships of marriage or descent, as in Donald for Jane 'Donald is Jane's husband'; according to Holm and Shilling, "this may derive from an earlier fo possessive" (1982: 80). There is also, however, for who, which functions as an interrogative pronoun, as in For who they are? (Holm.1982:81).
