7. They have a Lyaric Dialect

Lyaric

This Dialect was created by the early Rastafarians in Jamaica as a derivative of the Jamaican Creole. On the other hand, the Jamaican Creole originated from English by African slaves who had been brought to the island of Jamaica. The Rastafari movement obtained the language and personalized it both in dialect and philosophy to meet their needs, forming a dialect now commonly known as the Lyaric. Among the outstanding concepts is the use of pronouns. Most of the time, “I” is used in place of “me,” “you,” any other pronoun for that matter. They do so as an expression of their connection between all people and to acknowledge everyone’s humanity.
