“Nes” and “Net soos”

Hello friends,

The Afrikaans word Nes is a contraction of Net soos, which, in English, means “just like”, or “exactly the same as”.


It is just like his
Dit is nes seine
(Dit is net soos seine)

That house looks exactly the same as mine
Daardie huis lyk nes meine
(Daardie huis lyk net soos meine)

Note: Nes also means “Nest” in Afrikaans (in the sense of a bird’s nest, for example).
