Mystery of Yoda's strange accent is solved: Scientist claims the Jedi Master's native language is HAWAIIAN

The discovery was made David Adger at Queen Mary University of London
'He's obviously speaking English as a second language,' the professor said
Yoda says things like 'the greatest teacher failure is'.  If you were to say that in a language like Hawaiian, it would be almost exactly the sameBy Ellie Zolfagharifard for MailOnline

WHY YODISH IS LIKE HAWAIIAN

When we say: `Luke is strong with the Force', Luke is what linguists call the subject of the sentence and strong is part of the predicate.

When Yoda says the same thing, he puts that part of the predicate first, so he says `Strong Luke is with the Force!’

By using these linguistic rules, we can make a guess about the language Yoda grew up speaking – 900 years before the events in the films.

Other human languages put the predicate before the subject.

“That's how Hawaiian works,' said Professor Adger. 'So now we know, if Yoda ever came to Earth, he’d probably spend Christmas in Honolulu!”
