Is there a H. Creole phrase similar to the english "I'm sorry" or "Excuse me" with the meaning "I didn't hear you correctly."

Yes. We say, "Padon?"


A Haitian friend near Hinche gave me three ways to say this. They might carry some associations of politeness, formality, or social background...

1. En?
2. Padon?
3. Plètil?
