Containing over 5000 entries, this enlarged and revised edition provides a wealth of new and updated words borrowed from Afrikaans, Malay, township slang, Indian Khoisan and Bantu languages, including words influenced by the political upheavals of recent years. Branford offers phonetic transcripts for words derived from other languages, and for most entries, gives etymologies, grammatical usages, and helpful quotes.
