Dude. We speak English. Sweet. Seriously, the official language of Barbados is English. But the people of Barbados, like almost every other country, have their own dialect. At some stage during your visit to the island, especially if it is your first visit, you will engage in a conversation with a Bajan (i.e., a Barbadian).
At some stage during said conversation, you will hear several words spoken in our Barbadian dialect. Desperation and confusion may descend upon you. Not unlike the feeling you get when you wake up on a Monday morning after a long weekend of heavy partying, err, socializing only to realize that you have to go to work.
Keep calm and carry on, my friend, for below is a list of frequently used Bajan words and a loose translation into English. Sort of.
