Meaning of sarth effrikan

sarth effrikan means: A list of words supposedly an 'introduction' to the language dialect used in South Africa: (ed: in no particular order!): Braai A braai is the first thing you will be invited to when you visit South Africa. It is a backyard all-weather barbecue. So you will have to go even if it's raining like mad and you have a hang of a cold. At a braai you will be introduced to a substance known as "mieliepap". Ag This one of the most useful South African words. Pronounced like the "ach" in "achtung", it can be used to start a reply when you are asked a tricky question, as in: "Ag, I don't know." Or a sense of resignation: "Ag, I'll have some more mieliepap then." It can stand alone too as a signal of irritation or of pleasure. Donner A rude word, from the Afrikaans "donder" (thunder). Pronounced "dorner", it means "beat up." Your rugby team can get donnered in a game, or your boss can donner you if you do a lousy job. Eina It means "ouch". Pronounced "aynah", you can shout it out in sympathy when someone burns his finger on a hot mielie at a braai. Hey Often used at the end of a sentence to emphasise the importance of what has just been said, as in "Jislaaik boet, you're only going to stop a lekker klap if you can't find your takkies now, hey?" It can also stand alone as a question. Instead of saying "excuse me?" or "pardon?" when you have not heard something directed at you, you can say: "Hey?" Isit? This is a great word in conversations. Afrikaner etymologists labored for several years in sterile conditions to devise a way of attaching the word 'is' to the word 'it' and enable South Africans to make intelligent conversation around the braai. Example: "The Russians will succeed in developing capitalism once they adopt a work ethic and respect for private ownership." "Isit?" Jawelnofine This is another conversation fallback word. Derived from the four words: "yes", "well", "no" and "fine", it means roughly "how about that." If your bank manager tells you your account is overdrawn, you can say with confidence: "Jawelnofine." Jislaaik Pronounced" Yis-like", it is an expression of astonishment. For instance,if someone tells you there are a billion people in China, a suitable comment is: "Jislaaik, that's a hang of a lot of people, hey?" Klap Pronounced "klup" - an Afrikaans word meaning smack, whack or spank. If you spend too much time at the bioscope at exam time, you could end up catching a sharp klap from your pa. In America, that is called child abuse. In South Africa, it is called promoting education. Lekker An Afrikaans word meaning nice, this word is used by all language groups to express approval. Gentlemen who spy someone of the opposite sex who is good-looking, may remark: "Lekk-errrrrrr!" Tackies These are sneakers or running shoes. Also used to describe automobile or truck tires. "Fat tackies" are big tires, as in: "Where did you get those lekker fat tackies on your Volksie, hey?" Dop This word has two basic meanings, one good and one bad. First the good. A dop is a drink, a cocktail, a sundowner, a noggin. If you are invited over for a dop, be careful. It could be one or two sedate drinks or a blast, depending on the company you have fallen in with. Now the bad: To dop is to fail. If you dopped Standard Two (Grade 4) more than once, you probably won't be reading this. Sarmie A sandwich. For generations, schoolchildren have traded sarmies during lunch breaks. If you are sending kids off to school in the morning, don't give them liver-polony sarmies. They are the toughest to trade. Bakkie This word is pronounced "bucky" and it is a small truck or pick-up. Young men can take their "cherrie" (girlfriend) to the drive-in bioscope in a bakkie but it is not always an appropriate form of transport because the seats don't recline and you may be forced to watch the film. Howzit A universal South African greeting, often used with the word "No" as in this exchange: "No, howzit?" "No, fine." "Isit?" Mrs Balls'. Chutney We don't know if the lady ever existed, but if she did she has earned a place of honour in South African kitchen history. South Africans eat it with everything, including fried egg.

Meaning of dynamo

dynamo means: n generator. Usually on a car or bicycle, this is a device intended to take power from the engine to recharge your battery as you drive along (or power the lights, in the case of a bicycle). Or, in the case of my own fine automobile, take power from the engine and dribble it lazily into the ether. These days, dynamos on cars have been replaced by alternators. Alternators run on alternating current as opposed to direct current and are more effective at charging the battery at low revs. Why, you might wonder, do some of the parts of this book that relate to cars appear to have a lot more effort put into them than other parts? Well, I’m a car person. I’m much more interested in car words than I am in words that mean “sheetrock” or “faucet.” If you’re a sheetrock person then I’m sure there’s a book out there somewhere for you.
