What South Africans really mean when they say the things they say.

One of the most cheerful things about South Africans is the way we take over words from each others' languages without so much as a how-de-do or thank you.

If it sounds better in the other guy's taal, then just use it. This happy habit of verbal pilfering puzzles overseas visitors sometimes, but it may be one of the reasons why we were able to pull off the Big Transition two years ago to everybody's surprise but our own. If you use your new neighbor's words, it won't be long before you are chommies.

LEXICON 1: Isit? Jawelnofine!:
A survival guide for visitors to South Africa.
You better read this, hey.

What is a "braai"? It is the first thing you will be invited to when you visit South Africa. A "braai" is a backyard barbecue and it will take place whatever the weather. So you will have to go even if it's raining like mad and hang of a cold. At a "braai" you will be introduced to a substance known as "mealiepap". Read further for an explanation of "pap".

Now that you know what a "braai" is, here are some other words and phrases you will encounter in South Africa, used by folk of all persuasions, genders and ethnic adherences. You do need to know what they mean. Really.
