Jamaica

Talk

Some Jamaicans speak Jamaican Creole, also known locally as Patois (pronounced “patwa”). Jamaican pronunciation and vocabulary are significantly different from English, despite heavy usage of English words or derivatives. Jamaican Creole is used almost exclusively when Jamaicans speak between one another. In all other cases (especially around tourists), English is used.
