What Are Some Common Cajun Expressions?

Some common Cajun expressions are "Make the veiller," "Alohrs pas?," "Who dat?," and "chute-de-chute." Cajun expressions are prevalent in the American state of Louisiana and are typically comprised of a mixture of French and English, or a combination of several languages, known as Creole.

"Make the veiller" is an expression used when someone is spending the evening with friends or other acquaintances. "Alohrs pas?" is often used as a reply to a question and it means "of course not." "Who dat?" is a common expression for "who is there?" It became a pop culture phrase when the New Orleans Saints won the Super Bowl in 2010. Chute-de-chute is a term used for the slide on a children's playground.
