The Virgin Islands is one of the greatest countries in all of the Caribbean. It's position atop many nations comes through an amalgamation of many things: it's Financial Services Centre, its breath-taking landscapes, the archipelago of islands and the dynamic duo, the people and the culture. Ever necessary, it is also the language of the people which is English that is informally spoken at times that ties the people to the culture and vice versa as the oral tradition of passing on information is alive within it's shores. The ballad of Virgin Islands speech is undoubtedly as much a star of story time as the characters they describe. The Virgin Islands Dictionary chronicles the body of words and phrases that will continue to lend well to that oral tradition and certainly concreting for the Virgin Islands people that their brand of speech has always been what they have always known it to be: extra special. While speaking English is neat. Speaking both English and Spanish would make you impressively bilingual, but speaking English with the special flair of the sweet-sounding Vi accent makes you Vilingual! The Virgin Islands Dictionary thus is the greatest collection of the words and phrases that the people of the Virgin Islands have come to know and love thus creating a brand of speaking that can encode many meanings. This book guides you on the ins and outs of the “language” and should even teach the newbie how to say anything like a Virgin Islander.
