Also as people worldwide swing to our music and tales about our scenic country with its numerous natural attractions continue to seduce everyone who hears about it thus becoming a well -known and greatly sought after tourism destination in the Caribbean, since most Jamaicans do not automatically speak English but only when required, this dictionary is critical to travellers as well music lovers. For you never know when your dream will come through and you not only have the pleasure of rocking to our music but also get the opportunity to visit us.

Our Dictionary therefore will satisfy all your needs in a most humorous way. Yea mon. No problem mon. Irie. Just think how much more you will enjoy the pulsating beat of reggae/dancehall music and a visit to our seductive island if you could understand what we are saying or singing about!

Yeah mon. So start your lesson in the Jamaican language today. Lesson 1. If an artist at a stage show is giving a great performance, what do you shout most exuberantly" Hat it up yes" and when the performance is lousy make sure you shout "Pack Up and park." Thirsty? You need to "beat sum juice" and if your partner eats everything in sight? That makes him " Nyami nyami." When you cannot understand what is being said if you do not indicate that you have a problem "overstanding: " you will continue to be left in the dark! Need to feel irie? A Bob Marley is a large marijuana/ganja cigarette/ spliff. So named as the great reggae artist's most famous poster has him holding the huge sample.
