Reading "Icarus" by Deon Meyer. "The King of South African Crime." And translated from the Afrikaans to English by K. L. Seegers.

Thus, how many ways is there to say "f@#$!" in Afrikaans.

There's f%^, as in f@#$!
There's f%^^en, as in f@#$ing!
There's f%^^it, as in f@#$ it!
There's f%^^ops, as in f@#$ ups!

Any more . . .?!
For example, what is Afrikaans for "f@#$ all!"

On a serious note, what do you think of the Afrikaans language's future? Is it a dying language doomed to be overtaken by English?

I don't think so, otherwise I will only be fluent in two languages instead of three: English and expletives  Wink

There's been more Afrikaans language films produced and released in the last five years than in the last two decades so I think so long as people speak it, it won't die out.

Wiping my ass causes me great pleasure, especially when I use dead squirrels to get the job done.

It sounds like the South African government is doing a pretty good job of letting SA's many languages co-exist (or at least not doing anything to hurt them).  I gather Afrikaans actually has a pretty good media presence.  I've definitely heard it more in music and film than Zulu or Xhosa (I think I've heard one Zulu song ever).  

I also know there's education, some government functions, published magazines/newspapers, websites, business, radio, and some television conducted in Afrikaans...  Linguists generally say you need governmental support, education, and media for a language to have good survival chances...  Definitely has all that, and a speaker base in the millions, so I'd say it's future is pretty secure as a living language.  Which is awesome.   Thumbup

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
