    Learn Jafaikan in two minutes

    Multicultural London spawns a new language no-one else understands:

    "Safe, man. You lookin buff in dem low batties. Dey's sick, man. Me? I'm just jammin wid me bruds. Dis my yard, innit? Is nang, you get me? No? What ends you from then? If this language sounds familiar, the chances are you're from inner-city London, where a new multicultural dialect is emerging. But wherever you live, it's coming to you soon. The "cor blimey, guvnor"s of those born within the sound of Bow bells are fading into oblivion as a new Jamaican-inspired language takes hold. In a not too distant future, the familiar EastEnders twang of the market seller ("Cam and git your tasty apples!") will be replaced by an Ali G-style patter ("Dem apples is sick, innit?")."

    So when are they going to update EastEnders? And will there be subtitles?

    Creps Trainers; thought to originate from Jamaican parlance. "Gimme dem creps, man."

    Yard Home (from "back yard"). "Out tonight?" "Nah, man, I'm chillin' in my yard."

    Blad/bredren/bruv Mate; "blad" is thought to relate to "blood" brother. "What you sayin', blad?"

    Yute Kid, kids; from "youth". "Those yutes be runnin' round."

    Safe/easy Greeting. "Oh, there he is ... safe, man!"

    Ends Neighbourhood, area. "What ends you from?"

    Sket Loose woman; short for Caribbean sketel, meaning "slut". "Dat gal is a proper sket."

    Low batties Trousers that hang low on the waist; slang for man's buttocks. "Check out dem low batties!"

    Nang Good, cool; originally from Australian slang. "Last night was so nang!"

    Sick Good. "Dat new skateboard is sick, man."

    Deep Rude, horrible. "That was deep."

    Allow it/him Leave it/him alone, forget it. "Wanna walk to the shop?" "Nah, allow it, bruv, dat's a trek, innit?"

    Nuff Really, very; from "enough". "He was nuff rude."

    Buff Attractive; used to describe a man or woman. "Hey, you seen my new man? He's well buff, innit?"

    Begging Talking nonsense. "You just beggin' now."

    Jamming Hanging around; thought to originate from musical term. "What you up to, blad?" "Just jammin'."

    Hype (n) Excitement; (adj) exciting; (v) to get excited. "That's some hype bike you have"; "He got drunk and was runnin' round on a hype."

    Chat Talk back, contradict. "Don't chat to me!"

    Bare Very, a lot. "I'm bare hungry"; "There were bare people"

          I hate these slang talks. I used to use a few lines when i was younger until i found out how idiotic/immature i sounded. Whenever i hear this i feel like giving them a shoe around the head.

              Maybe they should twin Kingston, London with Kingston Jamaica.

              That talk makes me laugh... if only dem a fi try pan unno Trenchtown man(if they tried to talk like that in Trenchtown...)

              I've seen it done by non-Caribbean Muslims to Muslims of Caribbean heritage, in an attempt to build rapport, even though both parties were born here. Maybe they should respond in 'bud bud' accents...
