Indian English: “reach”

  • February 20, 2005, 6:50pm

Here in the Turks 7 Caicos Islands, British West Indies, in the Caribbean, people use "reach" to mean "arrive." Also, with the local grammar of sorts, it is usually spoken of in past tense like this: "I done already reach." If I say "No, he didn't come here yet," old people will always "correct" me and say "You ain't say that... you say 'No, he ain't done already reach.'"

Pretty ungrammatical to standard English but it sure gets the point across!
