Yeah just like every language it’s different from place to place lot of people in Kingston have a hard time understanding people in “country”
I’m fluent in French but have a hard time understanding people from France at times and it’s my first language lol
Short answer is yes. they’re different.
Accents vary depending on parish and other factors.
Then there’s the fact that our language is a continuum. You can read more here
>just nod and say “ a true enuh” (translation: thats so true)
Lol. I understand this. No need for translation. But that was funny! I think I understand Charly Black since he comes to come from Trewlany.
Yes some accents harder than some am Jamaican and when I say even I don’t understand when country people talk sometimes and yes their patois is different from the rest and maybe the hardest to understand
Anecdotally, yes, there’s a significant different in the accent around the island. I am not a native speaker, and the difference between the accents of the north coast and Kingston area is very marked. There’s also large differences with level of education and such in the same area. I don’t know about one known to be harder to understand/pick up than another, though, or if there has been any in depth study of regional differences.
