    what do the word “nice” and “kind” when in african and how do you spell it in african?

  2. There’s no such thing as “African” as a language. There are hundreds of languages spoken on the continent.

  3. Well, it’s not ‘African’, but a hybrid of Afrikaans (ja/yes) and English.

    In substance, it’s a very Beckettian phrase. Think Waiting For Godot, set in South Africa; that moment at the end of the play when Vladimir says to Estragon ‘Well, shall we go?’, and he replies ‘Yes, let’s go.’ And neither of them move.

    That’s a very ja-well-no-fine moment.
