Afrikaans Nouns

Learning the Afrikaans Nouns displayed below is vital to the language. Afrikaans nouns are words used to name a person, animal, place, thing, or abstract ideas. Nouns are usually the most important part of vocabulary. Here are some examples:

Notice the structure of the Nouns in Afrikaans has a logical pattern. Locate the Nouns above and see how it works with the rest of the sentence in Afrikaans.

Note: Because Afrikaans has lost its case system, nouns do not have grammatical gender and there is a distinction between the singular and plural forms of nouns. The most common plural marker is the suffix -e, but several common nouns form their plural instead by adding a final -s.

Word order in Afrikaans: There is a rule which indicates the order in which the parts of a sentence should appear. So if you want to construct a sentence follow the below order:
Subject | First verb | Time Object | Manner | Place | Second verb | Infinitive.
Example: Ek weet dat ons dit sal leer. (I know that we will learn it.)
