Jamaican Creole - Jesse RoyalPlay video
Noisey Jamaica interviews Jesse Royal, living in Kingston. It's interesting to listen to his Jamaican Creole productions as well as the host (Walshy), as he codeswitches rarely, very aware of his video audience who are assumed to speak "standard" English.
My White Jamaican DadPlay video
This is a clip of a daughter interviewing her native Jamaican father - his production shows multiple aspects of the modern Jamaican accent. I chose this video to exhibit not only his speech production, but to highlight the rich cultural history of the Caribbean; Because Irish servants worked alongslide slaves from West Africa in the New World, there are many Caucasian natives to this area.
