Afrikaans Brief Translations & slang words

Unread postby WELSH_ASH » Wed May 10, 2006 12:13 pm

Hi All,

Just suggesting it would be a good idea if we can have an alphabetic list of Afrikaans words & slang words that are regularly used in the forum translated to english. (similar to the abbreviations & acronyms topic)

e.g. what a koppie is, what wildtuin means..etc

What you think mods?
Cheers,
Ash

Have a look here as well Afrikaans Animal Names
