Afrikaans, the beautiful language

Post by Moering Tool » Tue 29 Mar 2016, 15:39

It's often been said that Afrikaans is a very idiomatic language. Now I don't know WTF that means, but it's got some wonderful words that can't easily be translated.

For example:

Bielie
Buksie
Rondtomtalie
Gatvol
Bollemakiesie
Vloermoer
Katspoegie

Any more examples you can think of would be fun.
