Description

Besides recognisable characteristics of South African English, such as ‘Vrystaat’, ‘ou boet’ / ‘ou swaer’, ‘eksê’ or ‘nogal’, speakers of South African English give clear indications – even if their accent is not marked – of their being South African. Say again? aims to regale you with many examples of South African English. An understanding of these items can be useful and enlightening to South Africans as well as to strangers in our midst.
