Excerpt of “A Nuh Mi Fi Like It”:
“For those of you who don’t know, the title of this blog post is in Jamaican Patois. It means, “I am not one to like that”. Accents are usually frowned upon in writing, perhaps not frowned upon, but are often a cautionary tale. The proverbial “they” say one should not write accents in dialogue unless you are absolutely certain you can pull it off. Why? Because, it’s distracting and leaves people wondering what the heck is this character saying.
