Jamaican Patois (also known as ‘Patwa’, ‘Patwah’ or ‘Jamaican Creole’) is the language that is used by most Jamaicans in casual everyday conversations while Standard English is normally reserved for official purposes and professional environments. English is the official language of Jamaica and Jamaican Patois is a separate language to English. Most permanent residents of Jamaica have a firm linguistic handle on Jamaican Creole, but because the language is primarily a spoken one, most people communicate in writing using the UK style of English.

Jamaican Patois is known for its pleasing tone, with a musical lilt and a rhythm to the spoken word. This regional form of Creole is very present throughout Jamaica, with a current population of approximately 2.9 million, and can often be heard in the popular form of Jamaican music known as reggae.
