Examples of the Jamaican way of talking:

A man was in the car, a friend approached. The man said to the friend approaching:

fahwud nuh – come on (let’s go)

The friend say’s:

Ah weh wi ah guh guh? – Where are we going to go?
(guh guh is not a typing error. When it’s said like this it means “going to go”)

The man says:

mi nuh kno yaah – I don’t know (yaah has no real meaning, it’s sort of like saying the slang word ‘yo’
