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.

Guest: Adam Haupt – Director of the University of Cape Town Centre for Film and Media Studies
