From kitchen Dutch to academic language that can hold its own
Afrikaans is celebrated for being an expressive language. It all began when a small group of men in the Boland town of Paarl started the ball rolling… The development of Afrikaans is described as one of the three language wonders of the world. In only 50 years, Afrikaans evolved from the vernacular, or kitchen Dutch, to an academic and economic language that can compete on the world stage.
