Datapoint Pidgin Hawaiian/Order of recipient and theme in ditransitive constructions

There are a number of instances of T-S-V order but I regard these as fronting for emphasis and none of these examples include overt recipients. There is one instance of S-T-V order, again without an overt recipient, which is common in Hawai'i Pidgin English and which reflects Japanese SOV order.
