About this book:

Say again? aims to regale you with many examples of South African English. An understanding of these items can be useful and enlightening to South Africans as well as to strangers in our midst. Written in an accessible style, each chapter features words and phrases from different aspects of life - some serious and some not so serious - with actual examples of usage from written and spoken sources. These examples are interspersed with pictures and illustrations that liven up the text.
