i could relate to what yuh say dey fadder
...TOTALLY...when we talk to certain people (foreigners) sometimes communication can be very frustrating due to de fact that we speak how we do (slang,and quickly)...so sometimes people have to ask you to repeat what you said over and over or slow down cause you're speaking to fast for them.
in response to de thread some people just pick it up due to circumstances....some just feel like is a style and it cool and some does use it to get attention or outta trouble...example: I in trinidad last year driving on de bus route(no bus route pass
) transit police pull me square..Officer:good day sir can i see yuh bus route permit...canadian accent in dey muddas ass..#8:bus route pass?? i wasn't aware that i needed a pass to drive in Trinidad..all i have is my license
<#8 takes out canadian drivers license and other canadian documents and hands them to officer>Officer:Oh okay boss,well yuh really not supposed to be driving on this route without a special permit but seeing yuh not from here i won't write you up,when yuh reach de next setta traffic lights go right until yuh hit de main road and take it to yuh destination,have a good day and enjoy yuh vacation.#8:

I'm always gettin the " So why you does talk so? yuh from america o wah? what is that about? If you are a true Trini and yuh does talk yuh talk no seen in dat, but ah clever Trini knows how to speak proper at any given moment or as in #8 case, to save yuh ass!
