Blurb/Shorttext:
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Barbadian English or Bajan English is a dialect of the English Language used by Barbadians (Bajan) and by Barbadian Diasporas. It should not be confused with Bajan Creole, which is an English-based creole language. The Barbadian English is very rhotic and full of glottal stops. It's also very ubiquitous for the first vowel in price or prize. One example of Barbadian English would be the pronunciation of departments, which is [dɪˈpaːɹʔmənʔs].The Kit Vowel: The realization of the kit vowel in the Barbadian English is pretty much the same as in American English, the default Trap and lot vowels are not merged in Barbadian English. However the vowels of lot, cloth and thought are generally merged. The realization of the face vowel varies by region and education/class. The face vowel is manifested in educated speech generally by [eː] or [eɪ], and in rural and uneducated speech by the vowel [ɛ].
