Jamaican Slang Glossary Words and Phrases
Online Jamaican Language & Slang Glossary

The Jamaican language is based off of English, Spanish, African Languages and indigenous languages. Due to the mix and creativity of Jamaican Patois, Webster's Dictionary "ain't gonna" help you speak Jamaican. That's why SpeakJamaican.com developed this glossary of Jamaican Patois. The online version of the glossary is a great way to get familiar with widely used Jamaican Slang and everyday vocabulary contained in the Jamaican language. Use the glossary to find out what common Jamaican words like Duppy (Ghost) and Pickney (Child) mean. The glossary is also an essential tool in understanding some of the lyrics of Dancehall Reggae. Whether its putting together a phrase to use with Jamaican friends, looking up some Jamaican Slang words you heard in a dancehall song or expanding your Jamaican language vocabulary, the online version of the glossary will help.

Of course, the best resource would be the glossary contained in the Rastaman Vibration. Click here to get a copy of the Rastaman Vibration - The Definitive Guide to Jamaican Patois, Culture, Reggae and Rasta.
