The Language

Visitors coming to the Island often think that Saints speak an Island language, however, due to our descent from a mixture of nationalities nations, Eg Chinese and African slaves, our tongue has evolved into a unique way of speaking.

English speaking visitors may find it hard to understand parts of our dialect such as gone is pronounced “gorn” and catch is pronounced “kitch”
