Patois a gwaan with things an' me jus' a notice...

How is it that I am just noticing this? Patois as an option within Microsoft language. Shouldn't be surprised but I am. despite not being the official language, Patois has come to represent the people, the culture, history and struggles of the lives of many Jamaicans.

English is the official language of Jamaica; however, a large percentage of the people feel that Patois should be made an official language as well and I agree.
