What are words for "whatever" as an
interjection in creole? For example, "Parent: 'For the last time, brush your
teeth!' Child: 'Whatever!'" or "Speaker: 'Do you want to go uptown?' Response:
'Whatever!'" or "Friend: 'Bob isn't coming tonight.' Friend 2:
'Whatever!'"

Hi. There's not a standard way to express such indifference in H. Creole. Some Haitians express it by 'tchuipe', some express it by 'boude' or 'fè bouch long', some say 'di sa w vle' oubyen 'ak bò dèyè m w ap pale'; but if you're looking for a standard translation for 'whatever' as it used in your example, you will not find one.
