Cute Illustrations of Afrikaans Words

 

With 11 official languages in South Africa, you're bound to stumble across a few interesting words, especially when directly translated. Afrikaans is one such language, with words such as “Spookasem” and “Tuin Slang” which sound very different to their actual meanings.

 

Johannesburg illustrator Robyn O created a series of illustrations of Afrikaans words, depicting a humorous and cute literal translation for each word.
