QUESTION: Hi! I am a graduate student at FILM university, and I am asking help. The character in my short film has to say a few Jamaican sentences, and I want them to be authentic… can anyone translate them in spoken English? I would be very gratefull! Here they are:


1) "Shut up!!Or… I will fill your mouth with stones!"
2) "MOM! If you don’t stop it… I will get a stick and kill you all!"
3) "Where the hell did you come out from??"
