Which item you have more, that word is first such rice and peas. As for the curry chicken, is the same as BBQ chicken, Fry chicken ,tanduri chicken, baked chicken and so on, it's all an adjective to describe the Chicken. So the Ja man is correct.

Maybe... but Guyanese seek to describe the curry, not the chicken. Hence chicken curry, potato curry, beef curry, mango curry.

Me had a primary school fren who read somewhere that according to science, you don't have any clothes on.

So one day he papa was coming home from the shovel gang and he mentioned this science to his father.

Afta de man slap he ass with as cutlass a few time and said, me come home tired and you saying dis stupid-ness.

He nevva mention science again.

Having this "discussion" with a couple of people here at work. The Jamaican says "Curry Chicken" and I am trying in vain to explain the difference between a noun and an adjective.

Funny, I met a Jamaican guy few days ago. When he heard I’m from Guyana, first question to me, do you say curry chicken or chicken curry?  I got confused and had to think.   Chicken curry!

I actually heard this debate on the radio station the other day (can't remember which one) and it's both correct. They are very similar but a bit different in spices used and the order it goes in pot. So no use fighting for titles...it's both right ....sssooo HA!!!

No they are not. It's either Chicken Curry meaning a curry made from chicken or CurrIED Chicken meaning the way the chicken was prepared.

Adjective comes before the noun. So Chicken Curry would be a curry with a hint of chicken...Curried chicken would be chicken cooked in a curry sauce. There was once a case in the UK where a guy sued a restaurant for giving him Duck stew with a tiny bit of duck. Judge ruled that it was a stew with duck flavour.
