  1. I don't agree... It looks like "come pick me up"

    1. Yes, you're right. That is the literal meaning of one of these sentences:
      Pase pran'm.
      You come pcik me up.

      M'a pase chèche w.
      I'll come pick you up.

      But the sentences are also used in a list of expressions:
      menm plim, menm plimay,
      kabrit tomazo,
      Pase pran m, m'a pase chache'w
      Sometimes they say
      Pase pran m, m'a pase rele w.
      which means something like "we are of the same kind."
