Battling with kappies and deeltekens and other diacritics and conventions relating to Afrikaans spelling?
You are not alone! It may surprise you to learn that even many Afrikaans mother-tongue speakers, including those who have been through Afrikaans schools and/or tertiary institutions, are not always sure of how the rules work.
Enter Diacs and Quirks in a Nutshell, which explains the most important Afrikaans spelling rules in English, and at a highly accessible technical level.
The book is very conveniently available both as a conventional print book and as an e-book in different formats for Kindles and other e-readers.
