After long disdain, Jamaica gets 1st patois Bible
When English teacher Faith Linton first proposed translating the Bible into Jamaica's patois tongue in the late 1950s, most people who heard the idea shook their heads.

Let me say it again--the sole justification for producing and publishing any Bible translation is so that those who do not understand the words in the original languages can nevertheless gain access to them through words they do understand in their own language. . . .
excerpt from, Restating The Obvious About Bible Translations

But, Jamaica, needs to have greater contact, not less with English speaking world for economic reasons if for no other.
