Blog to share resources on Tsotsitaal

Hi all,

This blog will be a space to share resources on Tsotsitaal and other urban african languages varieties, as well as interesting articles on urban youth identity, language practice including slang, and subcultural styles.

Feel free to point me at good resources that I've missed...
