Bernsten, Jan
Language Problems & Language Planning, v25 n3 p219-35 Fall 2001
Discusses South Africa's adoption of nine indigenous languages to join Afrikaans and English as official languages and the expanding role of English at the expense of these languages. Analyzes studies on South African Englishes, examining the way expanded use and domains for Black South African English (BSAE) speakers will have a significant impact on the variety of English that will ultimately take center stage in South Africa.
