Bonjou Mandaly! I am pretty new at speaking Kreyol. On a recent trip to Haiti, we heard the word boadup (spelling?) a lot. I understand it as being a slang word for "broken". Is that correct. If not, what exactly does it mean. Thanks so much!

Hi,
I cannot think of a Haitian Creole word with similar spelling that would mean break or broken.
If, however, this word is used twice, like this (bodòp bodòp) it does describe the sound that a broken machine / equipment makes. In that case we use these terms in conversational context.
