Jamaican Pat’wa (Patois) – A Tale of Class and Culture

Internationally, Patwa represents the People, Music and Culture of Jamaica, but for visitors to the island, learning it can be a small challenge, as knowledge of local culture is often needed to understand the meaning.

Many people are surprised to find that Jamaica’s official language is actually Standard English and that this tiny island nation is the 7th Largest English speaking country in the World!

Jamaicans are descended at least partially from the many Africans who were enslaved and brought to the island.

Jamaica also has sizeable numbers of Whites and Mulattoes, persons of Syrian/Lebanese descent, and a large population of Chinese and East Indians, many of whom have intermixed throughout the generations. Mixed-race Jamaicans are the second largest racial group after Black Jamaicans.

Throughout Jamaica, Standard English is the language of business, law, education, religion and government, reflecting British colonial heritage and serving as an indication of membership in Jamaica’s privileged and educated upper social class who tend to have lighter colored skin.
