Another word that might be completely foreign to the, uh, foreign ear would be “bakkie”. Bakkie is the South African equivalent of the widely known pick-up truck. The word is derived from the diminutive of the Afrikaans term bak, which literally means bowl. Another popular derivative of the word is from the English term “buggy”, referring to the old two-wheeled horse-drawn cart used on farms.
