The first-ever dictionary of South Africa’s Kaaps language is being developed.
The dictionary project is the result of ongoing collaborative work between sociolinguists and Cape hip-hop artists.
Kaaps or Afri-kaaps is a language that developed through the encounters between indigenous African, South-east Asian, Dutch, Portuguese, and English people.
The newly launched dictionary has the potential to be a powerful democratic resource.
