Comment of Kamera Cartwright:
According to Mr Prince Mather, age 78 he is not to sure if this word was started in the Bahamas or picked up from someone visiting another country. He said this word is used to call your spouse or loved one, meaning your significant other. Mr Mather does not feel that this word is Bahamian at all, he feels that this word came from somewhere else.
