Question: As I was about to start another line from the Old Major’s speech, there was a loud knock at my door. Quickly, I got onto my feet and opened the door. Dinga and his girlfriend Thekwini, known to us as Theks, were standing there. ‘Wola pintshi!’ Dinga greeted me in township lingo. ‘Heyta daar. Please come inside.’ ‘Hi Dingz, said Theks. ‘Hello.’ Extract from Dog eat Dog (2004, p. 57) by Niq Mhlongo 4.1.1 Identify the variety used in the text.

4.1.1 The variety used in the text is South African English. 4.1.2 Words/expressions that indicate this are: "Wola pintshi", "Heyta daar", and "Dingz". 4.1.3 The translation in standard English could be: - "Wola pintshi" : "Hello friend" - "Heyta daar" : "Hello there" - "Dingz" : This term is a nickname and doesn't translate directly into standard English, but generally it's an affectionate term for a friend. 4.2 Non-Standard English: "I ain't got no time." Standard English Version: "I don't have any time."
