This scholarly reference work is also an entertaining guide to the English spoken in South Africa. It includes forms of English that are peculiarly South African, as well as words adopted from Afrikaans, African and Khoisan languages, and from local Malay, Indian and Jewish communities. The fourth edition reflects the beginning of a new era in South Africa, and contains quotations from a wide variety of sources, including Steve Biko and Nelson Mandela, among many others.
