"Chat Patois" with the Jamaican Language Audio Dictionary
In the listing for : Jon Connu, it notes that the etymology for this wording is unclear. When we lived in Kingston, my mother told me that the origin of this word was probably: 'gens inconnus' from the French meaning 'unknown people'.
There's no word in the English Language that can adequately translate "Bumboclaat", that's why it's one of my favourite words ever!
so uno like di duty rag dem ?Bumbo= dark/blackclaat = rug(bloodclaat is di used cotton unit of a umán ;)appy fi ear dats a man lovin di cleanin so much he da lov fi ear di word"duty rag" :))))))inna di austrian "guari" a "dreckada Haderlump" is di same ting-more insulting than expressing astonishment, as your favourite noun does...
LOLOL... "Dreckada Haderlump"!
