The author looks at the way in which a type of South African pronounces English words, has been an institution. The author writes about of himself as a Woozer who has lived, at various times, in Jonnsperk, Kaypdown and Pertouria, and he feels he has a reasonable acquaintance with STI (q.v.). After five years as an Arkie (q.v.), he taught in a Woozer school; also acting and directing, compiling school anthologies and generally distrupting people's lives. At one stage he thought he was experiencing the dilemma of his generation; nut now he's decided there's no real point in dropping-out anyway. And so, he believes that he may as well go on working 18 hours a day, 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year in some kind of self-imposed neo-Stalinist 25-year plan. No that he has retired, nothing has changed. He likes working with young people and he likes keeping his ears flapping, listening out for interesting pronunciations of South African English.
