    Is it "wine" or "whine" or someting else?

    Aight imixers, hopefully one of you can help me out with this. I use both "wine" and "whine" to spell our favorite carnival word but both cannot be correct. What is the correct spelling? Or, do we just spell it how we want to?

    It is wine, whine is incorrect. This is like how wunna is the correct spelling and wunnah is incorrect.

    On a related note it is wuk up, not wukkup or wukup.

    Ok, the word is derived from wind (as in winding a clock) which means to twist. So if you want to speek standard english the correct word is wind.

    Of the 2 common spelling

    Whine means to complain. --> whine - definition of whine by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.

    Wine is a drink --> wine - definition of wine by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.

    So I think of a wine/whine as smooth sweet so I use wine.


    But I have seen songs with whine and songs with wine.

    This is NOT about THE QUEEN'S ENGLISH. This is about CARIBBEAN COLLOQUIALISM.

    I know it as "WHINE."
