chee

(chee)

(Interjection) Hawaiian Pidgin for you think so? You notice?

For example:

“Chee, maybe we should just bag it and leave the ‘opihi for another day. Go vegetarian for a day like the Buddha monks, yeah? I think get some ripe papaya by Nakamura’s side fence. Plus we get plenny green mangoes from Liz-dem. ‘Ono with a little shoyu.” ~Uncle Kahana
