Comments about Afrikaans Vocabulary

1. Plurals are mostly an -e ending (boek > boeke)

However, there is also an -s ending, especially for words that end in -E, but also for words that end in R, L or -RM or -LM.

For details about plurals, go here.

2. Diminutives

Any noun and even some verbs can be given in the 'small' form. The basic idea is to add an -IE sound at the end, but it is a little more complicated than that. Go here,  for the details. All plural diminutives use the -S ending.

3. Capitalization

• Proper nouns (Johann or Pierre) and place names (Boston, Beijing) are capitalized. 
• Sentences start with a capital letter. When a sentences starts with the indefinite article ('n) it is not capilatized, but the next word is capitalized, for example: 'n Boek is in my hand.
