About the Afrikaans Language

Afrikaans is an Indo-European code, derived from Dutch and classified as Low Franconian Germanic, mostly spoken in�South Africa�and Namibia, with small numbers of speakers in Botswana, Angola, Swaziland, Zimbabwe, Lesotho, and Zambia. Due to emigration and migrant labour, there are potentially over 100,000 Afrikaans speakers in the United Kingdom, with different significant communities found in Brussels, Amsterdam,�Perth�(Australia), Mount Isa, Toronto and�Auckland. It is the main code employed by 2 associated ethnic groups in South Africa: the Afrikaners and the Coloureds or kleurlinge or bruinmense (including Basters, Cape Malays and Griqua).

Geographically, the Afrikaans code is most code of the western one-third of South Africa (Northern and Western Cape, spoken at house by 69% and 58%, respectively). It is moreover the biggest initially code in the adjacent southern 3rd of Namibia (Hardap and Karas, where it's the initial code of 44% and 40%, respectively).

Afrikaans originated within the 17th Century Dutch code. The dialect became well-known as "Cape Dutch". Later, Afrikaans was often equally called "African Dutch" or "Kitchen Dutch", although these terms were primarily pejorative. Afrikaans was considered a Dutch dialect until the late 19th century, when it started to be recognised as a distinct code, and it gained equal status with Dutch and English as an official code in South Africa in 1925.�Dutch�remained an official code until the brand-new 1961 constitution finally stipulated the 2 official languages in South Africa to be Afrikaans and English (although the 1961 constitution nonetheless had a sub-clause stipulating that the term "Afrikaans" was moreover meant to be referring to the Dutch language). It is truly the only Indo-European code of importance that underwent distinct development found on the African continent.
