First published in 1972, this lighthearted linguistic study of South African spoken English became a well-loved book among South Africans at home and abroad. Unique and humorous, the book was actually adopted by the BBC drama department as a reference for voice coaches when a white, urban, English-speaking South African accent was required. It is available again for a new generation of language lovers.
