The major existential construction in Jamaican is formed with gat (< English got) or hav (< English have) preceded by an indefinite pronoun, i.e. yu 'you' or dem 'they'. In some cases, even the 1st person plural wi 'we' is used. Which pronoun is selected depends on the speaker's attitude towards the thing which the discourse is about and whether or not s/he wants to be identified with it. Yu gat is the default construction which does not take this discourse feature into consideration.
