アキサミヨ AKI-SAMI-YO

  • OH MY GOD

チュブルヤミ CHUBURUYAMI

  • (HANGOVER) HEADACHE

チュラカギ CHURAKAGI

  • BEAUTIFUL WOMAN (Lit. beautiful face)

ハイサイ HAISAI

  • HELLO

イッテル ITTERU

Note: There are many different Okinawan dialects, however these words seem to crossover into the majority of different dialects. Also, most of the words in the above list are probably spelled wrong.
EDIT: UGLY WOMAN is not YONAKAGI, but rather YUNAKAGI
