Lunch with EB Inglis

Cape Town words that should be added to the dictionary

One of the many reasons to love Cape Town is its colourful use of language. From kwaai, mos, neh and dinges, Capetownians have a unique way of using language to express themselves. Inspired by Oxford English Dictionary's addition of more than 650 new words, senses, and sub-entries in their latest update, EB Inglis asked listeners to share typical Cape Town words that should be considered. These were the words we should add to the Cape Town dictionary according to WhatsApp the voice notes EB Inglis received.
