This is more focused on Western Caribbean English such as Jamaican, Caymanian, Belizean, and other Coastal Caribbean Central American country where there's large English-speaking Afro-Caribbean people.
It has it's roots in 17th and 19th century Hiberno English spoken in Southern Ireland such as Cork and British English. There's also some influences from Gaelic, Scottish, Welsh, and West African languages.
However, if we want to find the true roots of this unique dialect that is known to the world with quotes such as "whaguan mon" or "no problem mon" then focus on the English spoken in southern ireland cause what im about to show you is mind-blowing. The similarities between them and Jamaicans or Caribbean English speakers is striking to the point where they can often be mistaken to be from the same place if they were to make contact and this is because many of these Irishmen went to the Caribbean either as slaves or to find a better life for themselves as well as to escape from Ireland and go into exile.
