    Sorry but I can't.

    Instead I wanted to thank you for asking such an interesting question. Thanks to you I learned this, which I'd like to share:

    Garifuna is an Arawakan language spoken in Honduras, Guatemala, Nicaragua, and Belize by the Garifuna people. It is spoken by a majority of mostly Black-Hondurans.

    One interesting feature of Garifuna is a vocabulary split between terms used only by men and terms used only by women. This does not however affect the entire vocabulary but when it does, the terms used by men generally come from Carib and those used by women come from Arawak.
