Many people in Barbados speak an inventive hybrid form of English known as Bajan. Speakers of the dialect revel in the playful nature of Bajan phrasing and pronunciation. For example, Bajan speakers pronounce “th” as “d” (such as “dem” instead of “them), leave “to be” out of sentences (“I here” instead of “I am here”) and use the same word three times for emphasis. So, instead of “This music class is great!” a Bajan speaker may say, “Dis music class good good GOOD.”
