AN INVESTIGATION INTO THE ROLE OF THE AFRIKAANS LANGUAGE IN INDEXING THE INDIVIDUAL AND COLLECTIVE SELF AMONG SOME TOWNSHIP YOUTH IN SOUTH AFRICA

Abstract

Author(s): Charlyn DYERS

This article builds on the exploration of the negotiation of identity via language in a post-apartheid South African township in greater Cape Town, South Africa begun in 2004 (see Dyers, 2004 and Blommaert et al. 2005). Specifically, it looks at the ways in which the Afrikaans language underpins the individual and collective identities of mixed-race ‘Coloured’ school children marginalized by poverty, location and race.
