For over a decade, this helpful teacher's guidebook has been widely used in Jamaican schools and in metropolitan schools with Jamaican students. The book indicates the ways in which Jamaican Creole differs from Standard Jamaican English. For easy reference, the book is organized into four sections: 1. Words that look alike but mean different things in the two languages. 2. Words that are different but mean the same things. 3. Grammatical structures that are different but convey the same information. 4. Idiomatic Speech or writing.
