Re: THE TITIREE FOUND IN THE BUSHEREE

Mangodog, I must thank you for you informative response. I think however I can provide more clarity regarding the use the origin of Titerie. I believe the way Beverly Steele spells it in her book “Grenada, A History of its People” might shed more light.
On page 46 she writes, “Many words such as hurricane, ajupa (a hut) titiwe (the name for little fish), Mabouya (evil spirit or the much- feared little lizard are part of the Grenadian vocabulary.”

Perhaps the spelling “titiwe” might make a difference.
