    Afrikaans phrasebook
    Afrikaans is spoken throughout South Africa and Namibia. The language is mainly derived from Dutch. However,
    most Afrikaans speakers in the workplace have some knowledge of English.


    Pronunciation guide

    Vowels
    a
          as in sun
    e
          as in met but sometimes as in meet or angel
    ê
          as in apple
    ë
          usually pronounced the same as 'e', but when it is accented due to grammar, such as in words like 'geëet' which
          means 'to have eaten', it can be pronounced three other ways: meet, fear or wet
    i
          as in bit
    o
          as in fort or mood or boy
    ô
          as in cauldron
    u
          as in u in hut with rounded lips
    y
          as in to'ey' in hey
    'n
          in 'a' as in 'a dog' or 'a song'. This is the article; it is never capitalised even if used at the start of a sentence: the
          word that follows is capitalised.
    Note that Afrikaans pronunciation is extremely difficult and can be a challenge, even for Dutch speakers.


    Consonants
    b
          as in bat
    c
          as in king (uncommon, usually proper nouns e.g. 'Coetzee'
    d
          as in dance but pronounced as English 't' at the end of words
    f
          as in fan

    g
          similarly to the 'ch' in bach, but a lot harder and more glottal - a bit like hawking up phlegm :-).

          as in hat
    j
          as in yak
    k
          as in king

    x
          as in fix but extremely rare, usually found in scientific terms or loanwords.
    z
          as in blitz
    In some loan words, 'g', 'v' and 'w' may be pronounced the same as their English equivalents, but this is uncommon.


    Digraphs and trigraphs

          as in father

          two sounds, one after another, quite quickly. Starts as 'aa' and is quickly finished off with the Afrikaans 'a' as
          in dust
    ch
          can be pronounced in three ways: loch or shine or king

    rs

          like farse, but the 'r' is rolled
    tj
          as in chunk
    tj
          combined with ie as in kid
    ui
          also a unique sound. Sounds like play but with pouted lips. The name shane is the closest English equivalent
    uu
          similar to German über but pronounced with more emphasis and much longer. Identical to the final 'yy' sound
    aai
          like the 'y' in shy, but a pronounced a lot longer.
    eeu
          A unique trigraph. The closest English equivalent is the English word ewe. Try blending the sounds 'ew' and
          'oo'
    oei
          similar to phooey but pronounced with a rapid 'w' in it
    ooi
          similar to oil but pronounced with a rapid 'w' in it
    uie
          similar to player but pronounced much longer


    Note on Afrikaans
    Like English, double consonants in Afrikaans are pronounced as a single sound, and not two separate sounds, unless
    occurring at a syllabary break: 'wekker': 'vack-er' (alarm clock) but 'melkkoei': 'melk-koo-ee' (milking cow).
    Note that although Afrikaans digraphs and trigraphs contain mostly vowels and sound as though they contain many
    syllables, they in fact are seen as a single syllable.
    For example, the word 'Goeie' sounds as if it contains 3 syllables, but in fact contains only two: 'goei' and 'e' are the 2
    syllables.
    From this, you can see Afrikaans pronunciation, like English for a foreigner, can be rather irregular. Pronunciation
    can be hard and the accent is extremely difficult to master, but when spoken correctly, Afrikaans is the most melodic
    Germanic language.
    However, one should not be daunted. Afrikaans grammar is really quite simple and is more similar to English than to
    any other Germanic language. Verbs are even simpler than English: there is no am or are or were but only is and
    was.
    One who is learning Afrikaans will probably catch onto it rather quickly and will have no problem with speaking
    Dutch or understanding German.

    Important differences between Dutch and Afrikaans
    A rukkie in Afrikaans is a short period of time, not a sexual act performed on oneself.
    Common use examples are Ek gaan 'n rukkie slaap or Ek sal oor 'n rukkie daar wees
    Baie means veel (many); however, the word veel also exists in Afrikaans and has the same meaning.
