n.— «Some students once met a radio personality and marvelled that she was a “browning.” This host speaks the real Jamaican patois and they thought she would be “jet black.” Why? Because brownings don’t talk like that of course.» —“ If it don’t ‘look’ right” by Daviot Kelly Jamaica Gleaner (Kingston) Nov. 5, 2007. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
