Bajan is an English-based creole language spoken on the Caribbean island of Barbados and parts of South Carolina's Lowcountry where it is known as Gullah. Bajan, like many other English-based Caribbean creole languages, consists of a West African substrate and an English superstrate. Bajan is similar but distinguishable from the creoles of neighbouring Caribbean islands, as many of the other Caribbean creoles are theorized to have Hiberno-English or Scottish English as their superstrate variety, for example Jamaican Patois.
