Book Title: Language in South Africa

Author: Editor: Rajend Mesthrie

Book Description:

I have been to South Africa 25 times and the people and land have become part of my soul. As a sociolinguist, I study language in society. This text provides a comprehensive sociolinguistic approach to the many languages and cultures in South Africa. Specifically, it examines language and policy issues associated with the transition to a post-apartheid society, focusing on its eleven official languages. This volume should serve as a valuable reference to anyone interested in the role of language in South Africa.
