LOL so Diane, whats the difference between Jamaican Standard English (when theyre speaking so a non-Jamaican can understand) and a twang? Is the word choice different too.. or just the accent?

Would an American be able to understand the JSE just as well as the twang?

SJE = English with Jamaican words (we say bitter/sour where other english speakers would use tart, we use raw for fishy, whereas elsewhere raw= unprocessed etc etc ) and accent (the nuances of how we "sound: words, where we place emphasis and so on). A twang just ends up being patois with an american accent but because the patois can range from raw-chaw (WTF did you say?) to English peppered with patois the twang will vary.

Tessanne Chin From THE Voice speaks SJE. SJE will have flicks of patois here and there too as well especially in casual talk.

You'd prob. understand both. but SJE is clear, it's the speed of the language ( full patois , twanging)Cry that may confuse you. I speak SJE i knew patois but really got immersed in it at work (my mother still grieves over this lol) one of my coworkers said to me and I never forget " Diane! Yuh cyaan taak naahmal"LOL i was like but this is normal you country bumpkin

If i called you now you'd say i dont sound very Jamaican. I've gotten that on conference calls and requests to speak patois too.

Thanks for explaining, Diane Heart

I have a feeling you'd still sound super Jamaican to me LOL. You gotta participate on the next conference call

Whichever language you be typing in confuses the hell out of me sometimes! lol

I'll type in patois cause I'm typing fast or the thought came quickly or I'm surprised but that's how i know i'm comfortable with y'all cause I used to have to try to find the AAVE word to convey what i was trying to say. Note my use of Y'all instead of "oonu" i said lorttttt instead of LAAAAADDDDDDD (Lord)
