Not to interrupt the interesting and quaint names of places, but to add to the topic, what about words used here in SA to describe items which are different to how visitors from off shore describe the items.

Thinking here of a car boot for the, is it, trunk of a car?

Garage for a petrol station and petrol not gas that goes into the car.

Robots/traffic lights.

There must be many?

Matthys , now that is a very interesting animal you mentioned . Baardskeerder .
It refers to an Arachnid , and it looks like a spider , but is not a spider . It is a member of the Solifugae , and has six legs instead whereas a spider has 8 .
It is also called a "rooiman " ( redman ) , or roman ( sort of short for rooiman ) , haarskeerder ( hair-shearer ) , son spinnekop ( sun spider ) .
They hunt at night , running after their prey , and boy , can they move :doh: You should see them :big_eyes: They will catch anything from another spider , scorpion , lizard , crickets , small frogs , you name it :big_eyes:

By the way , even spinnekop , translated means "spinning head " :D .

So , really nice , that one :thumbs_up:

We just say "soutie " , or "rooinek " ( redneck ) - which does not have the same meaning as the rednecks in America , of course .
