Writing is an interesting art, and it is a surprise to many, who regard themselves as excellent speakers of a language - especially native speakers, that this spoken fluency does not translate into written fluency.

As with spoken language, written language has many voices, like formal, informal, legalese, plain language, child language, etc.

Enjoy exploring the unique aspects of writing in Afrikaans.
