Notice: Hey-
We were just wondering about recent changes in South African English. There is not a single web-site that will tell us about this, and nobody seems to know. We were hoping that someone here might know a source where we can find this information. Knowing about the recent changes in South African English is quite important to our grade in English this year, so we hope you guys can help us find this information!
