A reading by Mohammadi and du Plessis

G is a sound. Phonetically, it is represented as [χ]—and corresponds to خ in the Arabic alphabet—a guttural resonance shared between Afrikaans and Persian. Poets Klara du Plessis and Khashayar “Kess” Mohammadi composed G collaboratively as an act of hospitality into their languages and now they will read through the entire translingual collection, activating the playful linguistic connections and shifts.
