African word for “white man”. For a laugh, if someone says “Eita, umlungu!” reply “Sharp-sharp!”
Literally means “hole fill” in Afrikaans. Means you’ve had enough of something that’s making you angry. Usage: “Boet, I’m gatvol of this ref’s bad decisions.” Again with the harsh “g”.
A drinking session. “Phuza Thursday” is a noble tradition in South Africa. Try to uphold it while you’re here.
Okay. This is a complicated one. An expression of agreement. Or a greeting. Or a way of saying goodbye. Or a way of saying “Okay, sure.” Or a way of … forget it.
Very fancy. A word normally utilised by well-kept women with French manicures who will never, ever understand the off-side rule. Use the word if you must (it feels nice in the mouth), but aggressively avoid these women.
Great, awesome, amazing – like MRFilms
Hangover. Usage: “Jeez, I had too many dops last night. I’ve got a hectic babbelas.”
Gross, disgusting. “Check, that guy is picking his nose.” “Siff, boet.”
Term used for a type of homeless person in Cape Town. Originates from “berg”, which is the Afrikaans word for mountain, referring to the homeless people who used to live on Table Mountain but who now live mainly in the city. Pronounce the harsh “g” as if you’ve swallowed an insect and are trying to clear it from your throat.
