Does anyone understand Little Jacob when he talks?

Recommended Posts

Raiden_8

People always say that when I speak Broad Yorkshire, but it's not exaggerated. I doubt Little Jacob's accent is exaggerated either, although use of heavy dialect might reflect a less cosmopolitan upbringing.

it is exaggerated

 

you can tell with certian words , they are trying to hard to push the accent

 

the voice actors doing it

 

for sure there is people who speak just like jacob does in IV

 

but the voice actor doing the part of jacob , doesnt

I simply can't understand how Niko understands LJ.

I mean he's coming from Serbia and English is his second language. He should have a lot of trouble understanding that.

I also turned on subtitles just for him. Someone should make an official 'Little Jacob Dictionary'.

 

So far I think:

 

Wha'gwan means 'What's going on' or 'What's up'

Breden means 'Homie' or 'Friend' (Possibly Brother)

Rudeboy seems to be Niko's nickname to them

I an I possibly means 'You and Me'

Seen might mean 'Understand?' or 'Get it?'

 

Don't even get me started with Badman. Even with subtitles on it's just a flurry of words.

That should make it easier for him if he's not used to native English accents and is "still learning."

You should realize that brethren is the archaic plural of brother, as present in the Bible.

not just the bible either so ive been told

 

but people are liars , so i dont believe them

i understand him pretty well, but thats because i listen to raggae music, and if you want to enjoy that you have to understand the rasta language changes...

 

like bumbaclot or JAH RASTAFARI,

 

although badman just talks way to fast for me to understand

I think badman speaks creole.

lol badman does NOT speak creole......creole is a mixture of french, spanish and english.......and their accents are NOT exagerated

Uhmm.. that was just an example of where people often hear the word because the King James Version was published in 1611.

 

trinick: At least this sounds like Badman to me (I wasn't talking about Haitian Creole or any other Caribbean Creoles)

yeh man....well creole is a loose term........some ppl think of it as an english slang......and then it is also considered an entirely different language(like in haiti, martinique etc).......so no arguements here

ONE LOVE

You got most of the correct...

 

"Gwan" in general means want.

"Brethren" does not mean homie, or homeboy, but brother, as stated a million times before, you noobs.

"Rudeboy" is what the Jamaicans would call anyone that caused trouble, or was a gangster.

"I and I" is used in the Rastafarian religion in place of "you and me" to show that all people are equal under Jah (God).

"Seen" simply means, understand/understood.

And you would know this because...?

 

I'd like to hear from some of those folks who are from the West Indies. They will know for sure. After all, the guy they hired (Coolie Ranx) isn't a professional voice actor - he's a half Jamaican musician. Somehow, I don't think he's 'putting on' an accent any more than I am when I speak in the dialect I was brought up with.

The top of the page varies based on user settings. The top of the page must be different for me because all I see is a big graphic Hooked on Phonics ad posted by Beavis.

 

Anyway, the point is that the 'voice actor' in this case isn't a voice actor at all - he's a musician with West Indian roots. I fail to see how his accent could be 'manufactured' other than by virtue of his having grown up among West Indians. He may have grown up among West Indians in London and New York (his Wikipedia bio doesn't give precise details) but still, it's not voice acting.

does anyone here listen to massive b sounds and tuff gong radio??????

 

Yea, I love it. I normally listen to Metal and Rock and am a Rap/Hip Hop Hater, but for some reason, I love real gangsta jamaican stuff. What I dont understand is the sound that you always hear on Jamaican documentaries and on Master B Sounds where its an echo of a guy yelling "GO!!!"

 

I understand Little Jacob, because I study violent crime. I watch alot of documentaries and read alot of books that have alot of slang and all that kind of thing. I'll suggest you watch something like 'Ross Kemp on Gangs - Jamaica' to catch real people speaking like Little Jacob. Theyre real people living in the slums, where gun fights are a nightly reality. I have to admit, I dont understand everything he says in between key words, but listening for certain words in his sentences helps to construct a translation. You also have to pick up phrases and slang words aswell to stop you from going "what did he just say?"

For instance:

 

"Mek we dweet" means "Let's do it"

and

"Ya can't shake no hands when your fist be clenched" basically means, if you're not in the right frame of mind, you shouldnt be doing things that might get you into trouble.(I know its an obvious translation, but its very metaphoric and phylisophyical of him)

 

I've never had trouble understanding accents. I also find it quite easy to do alot of voices and accents myself. I practice the Jamaican accent sometimes, but its hard to get right. When me and my girlfriend go out and deal with foreign customer service people, she always looks at me to understand what the hell they just said.
