Tok Pisin is an interesting language. Take the following article on Canada:
Kanada i  wanpela    kantri         bilong       Not   Amerika.
Canada is one-fellow country (that) belongs (to) North America.
or, on Saturday:
Sarere   i  nambasikis de   bilong       wik.
Saturday is number-six that belongs (to) week.
 
Long sampela     kantri,    wik  i  stat  long Sande,  na  Sarere   i  nambaseven   de   bilong      wik.
In   some-fellow countries, week is start on   Sunday, and Satuday  is number-seven that belongs (to) week.
At first glance, it may not look very English-like, but after awhile, it gets easier to read.
