Caribbean English is a dialect of the English language spoken in the Caribbean. In the Caribbean, there is a great deal of variation in the way English is spoken.

Examples of the English in daily use in the Caribbean include a reduced set of pronouns, typically, me, we, he, she, and they (pronounced "day" or "deh").

A simple statement, "I don't know" could be stated, "I ain' know" in the case of Barbados, "Me na' know" in the case of Jamaica, "Me eh' know" in Trinidad and Tobago or "Me'en know" in the case of the Virgin Islands. Caribbean countries where English is an official language or where English-based Creoles are widespread include:

American English is used as a second language in Puerto Rico.
