If English is not your mother tongue, it can be a tricky language to speak - especially when a word is on the tip of your tongue but you just can't seem to remember it.

Social media user, Salawexe Jnr, who goes by the Twitter handle‏ @Salawexe_Jnr, recently had trouble coming up with the English word 'certify'.

Salawexe reported on an alleged arrest of a man who was found with a police stamp in his possession. It is believed that the man used the stamp to certify documents - which is against the law for someone who is not a Commissioner of Oaths.

However, when Salawexe tried to explain what happened, he got stuck on 'satisfy' instead of 'certify'.

"Arrested for being found in possession of SA PoliceService stamp. He was satisfying... eish satisfied. Ai! whatever it is, he was doing it."
