Afrikaan Language

Afrikaans, also sometimes called Africaan, is basically an African language with some Western Germanic elements in its origin. This language is native to South Africa and Namibia, and is also spoken in some parts of Botswana and Zimbabwe. It was derived from the numerous Dutch dialects spoken by the early Dutch settlers in South Africa. However, as time passed, it continued to develop in isolation, especially during the eighteenth century. Historically it was known as “Cape Dutch”, which also referred to all of the early Cape settlers, or “Kitchen Dutch”, which was considered an offensive term for Afrikaans. Afrikaans has borrowed several words from other languages, such as Portuguese, Malay, and Bantu.

Afrikaans is the third most widely spoken language in South Africa, with approximately seven million speakers, or 13.5% of the population. It is one of the most widely spoken official languages in South Africa, and is often also spoken or understood as a person’s second or third language. It is the chief language of South Africa’s western half, Northern Cape, and Western Cape. It is the first language of nearly 70% of coloured native South Africans (about 3.4 million people) and the first language of 60% of white South Africans (about 2.7 million people).

Afrikaan language translation

Afrikaans is the first language of approximately 600,000 black South Africans. In addition, a huge number of English-speaking and Bantu-speaking South Africans speak Afrikaans as their second language.
The Afrikaans language is the second most widely spoken language in neighbouring Namibia, and it is the native language of 11% households in the southern parts of Karas and Hardap, as well as the capital, Windhoek.

It is estimated that between 15 million and 23 million people worldwide speak Afrikaans.

In Act 8 of 1925, Afrikaans became one of the official languages of South Africa. The development of Afrikaans can be traced to the arrival of settlers to the Cape, though this is not the sole factor leading to the development of Afrikaans, as the servants, slaves, and indigenous traders were required to communicate in Dutch. This is evidenced by the variety of influences present in Afrikaans, including Khoisan, Malaysian, French, Dutch, English, and German, among others. The language is not limited to these influences, however, and various dialects are spoken all over South Africa, with each region’s dominant indigenous language influencing the dialect of Afrikaans spoken in that region.

The popularity of Afrikaans, and its subsequent endorsement by the Apartheid government, has its roots in an attempted social engineering project through which the Dutch population in South Africa sought to unify the members of these groups. They aimed to create a South African nationalism that recognised their varied origins while emphasising a unique South African identity. However, this identity was largely based on race, and thus, Afrikaans as a language became synonymous with white oppression in South Africa. But despite attempts to create a schism with regard to language and race among South Africans, Afrikaans is widely spoken by black people.
