n.— «I’ve learned that when we say “if a lik yu, yu fene,” “fene” is not something we made up. “Fene” actually comes from the word “fenay” which means to feel direct physical illness and show its effects or, more vaguely, to feel intense pain.» —“Lest we ‘fagget it’” by Tamara Scott-Williams Jamaica Observer (Kingston) Oct. 17, 2004.
