Just saw a fantastic Story ‘Strait Talking’ about ‘Yumplatok’ on SBS Living Black.
You can watch it online here. I was pleasantly surprised to see my friend Patrick Mau being interviewed on the program.
‘Yumplatok’ is a Creole or Broken English spoken in the Torres Strait and used by Torres Strait People around Australia.
It made up of primarily made up English, Meriam Mer and Kalau Lagau Ya.
