Wow, there is a whole BBC news service that writes in what it calls pidgin!

Example: https://www.bbc.com/pidgin/tori-57232375

I thought pidgin was a generic name for any nascent union of two languages, and that it isn't written, and that you don't learn it as a mother tongue; but apparently this is not how this word functions at the BBC. Very curious.

At least it's intelligible without much special training. Cymraeg is hopeless :-)
