English - Canada
Hello. I'm trying to figure out what the following six words mean in English: mismo, pag chor, char, kwan, gani, kaha
My best guess is that mismo = personally
pag chor = for sure
char = sure
kwan = ?
gani = obviously
kaha = ?
Please let me know the meaning of these mystifying words. Thank you very much for your attention to this matter. I look forward to your response.
