Bay Islands English

Bay Islands English is an English variety spoken on the Bay Islands Department (Guanaja, Roatán, Utila), Honduras. Ethnologue reported there were 22,500 native speakers in 2001.[1] Mainlanders know this language as Caracol, which literally means "conch". Genetically this variety descends from Cayman Islands English.[citation needed]
