Contractions

Hello friends,

Today I will share some common contractions used in speech and writing in Afrikaans.

Daai

Daai is short for Daardie, which basically means “That”.

Dis

Dis is short for Dit is, which means “It is”.

Equal to the English “It’s”.

Moenie

Moenie is short for Moet nie, which means basically “Should not”.

Equal to the English “Mustn’t”/”Shouldn’t”.

Cheers!
