In his comic sketch series Living …, about life in a Muslim neighbourhood, renowned writer and TV announcer Yusuf Daniels plays with words such as kanala, trama kasie, salaam and oemie. Yusuf reads extracts and talks to Shamiega Chaudhari, Hein Willemse and Mogamat Alexander about the Arabic roots of these words and the rich contribution that the Cape Muslim communities have made to Afrikaans. Hein wrote the foreword for the re-edition of the late Achmat Davids’s The Afrikaans of the Cape Muslims (now The Arabic Afrikaans Writing Tradition), and Mogamat compiled and published the Dictionary of Loanwords in the Cape Muslim Vernacular.
