Grammar & Examples The tense/aspect system of Jamaican Creole is fundamentally unlike that of English. EX.: "Me  come  yah fi drink milk, me no come yah fi count cow!“ I  came  here to (whatever you came for) not get involved in politics or gossip.
Pronominal system The pronominal system of Standard English has a four-way distinction of person, number, gender and case. Some varieties of Jamaican Creole do not have the gender or case distinction, but all varieties distinguish between the second person singular and plural (you). Ex.:  " You  too red eye" (meaning,  you 're too envious) " Im  sey dat yuh was to bring ting" " He  or  She  said you were to bring the thing“ " Im  too hard of Aise". " He/She  is too hard of ears“ Grammar & Examples
There are no morphological marked past tense forms corresponding to English -ed -t. EX.: "Trouble no  set  like rain", that is, unlike bad weather, we are often not  warned  by dark clouds on the horizon.  Grammar & Examples
Grammar & Examples There are two proverbial  particles:  en  and  a . These are not verbs, they are simply invariant particles that cannot stand alone like the English to be. Their function also differs from the English. Ex.:  "All  a  dem  a  me fambly". "All  of  them  are  my family“
Orthography Because Jamaican Creole is a non-standard language, there is no standard or official way of writing it.  EX.: The word " there " can be written  de ,  deh , or  dere .  The word " three " is most commonly spelled  tree , but it can be spelled  tri  or  trii  to distinguish it from the noun  tree .
"A so im tan" (that is what he is like) "tan deh!" or "yu tan deh!" (just you wait!) "Tan tedy", stand steady, means "hold still".  Bunks Mi Res (catch my rest, take a nap) " Is the dutty duppy man dweet". "The dirty ghost do it"  "mek we dweet". "Let us do it“ " Yuh too fass and Facety". "You are too inquisitive and fresh“ "Galang bout yuh business". "Go along about you business“ Some examples of phrases:
