Afrikaans developed when slaves in the Cape adapted Dutch - the language of the rulers - for their own use. Many years later Afrikaans was hijacked by some white Afrikaners as 'their language', but Davids proved beyond doubt that it was the descendants of the slaves, not their masters, who first wrote Afrikaans.

“…Davids straddled different fields and roles: unlike the linguists, he was also an historian and a community leader with deep roots in the Muslim community of Cape Town. He first established himself in the 1980s as an expert on 19th-century Cape Muslim history with two books, The Mosques of the Bo-Kaap (1980) and The History of the ana Baru, (1985). His work contributed much to inspire a new generation of historians of the colonial Cape to write more inclusive histories, which also paid attention to Islam. Thus, when Achmat Davids turned his attention to the contribution of Cape Muslims to the history of Afrikaans, he did so with a foremost knowledge of their socio-cultural history and with extensive access to informants and (private) sources which probably no other individual could have commanded. For this reason, this book is of as much importance to historians of the colonial Cape as it is to historians of the Afrikaans language and South African Islamic culture.” -Gerald Groenewald

The focus of this book is the Arabic-Afrikaans literary tradition of the Cape Muslim community. It looks at the emergence of this tradition at the Cape of Good Hope, as well as the social vehicles through which it emerged and through which it was in use. This is done through an examination of the literature, in the form of manuscripts and publications, it generated during the first hundred years of its existence.

Importantly, the book looks at the development of the distinctive Arabic alphabet that local Arabic-Afrikaans authors used to convey accurately this community's mother tongue.

The history of the Afrikaans language is still very little understood and discussed, and this book illuminates the extraordinary story of its beginnings, with slaves and colonisers, with Xam!, Indonesians, Malaysians, Turks and imams of all stripes. It's a wonderfully rich story told in detail here, with verve and a keen ear for story.

Jacana Media is delighted to make available again a classic work of South African hidden history, that of the Arabic Afrikaans literary tradition. Previously published in 2010 as The Afrikaans of the Cape Muslims from 1815 to 1915, this edition carries a new introduction by Heinrich Willemse.

Norme vir Afrikaans (nou reeds in 'n sesde uitgawe) het sedert 1989 bewys gelewer dat dit 'n besonder effektiewe bron is vir gebruik in taalkundeklaskamers van tersiere instellings en selfs in skole. Die boek is aan die een kant 'n praktiese naslaanbron wat as basis vir eie taalontwikkeling kan dien. Aan ander kant word in die aanpak probeer om taalteorie en taalpraktyk te versoen. Dat die outeur hierin geslaag het, is bewys deur die gereelde bywerk van die boek en die wye gebruik daarvan. In die besonder fokus die boek op die verskeidenheid 'norme' wat 'n mens in gedagte moet hou by die praktiese gebruik van Afrikaans, onder meer die beginsels onderliggend aan hierdie norme, en dan ook die identifisering van belangrike en nuttige bronne van taaladvies oor problematiese taalsake. Die doel van die boek is nie om streng 'normatief' te probeer voorskryf nie, maar eerder om leiding te gee in die hantering van praktiese taalkwessies met as vertrekpunt gefundeerde taalteoretiese kennis oor die Afrikaanse taalkunde. Die boek is nou al deeglik gevestig as 'n omvattende en uiters bruikbare hulpmiddel vir sowel student as dosent en is die vrug van die outeur se jarelange ondervinding as taaldosent en navorser. Daar word ook rekening gehou met die geleidelike herstandaardisering van Afrikaans, vandaar die nuwe subtitel 'Moderne Standaardafrikaans', wat 'n aanduiding is dat Afrikaans in die proses is om te moderniseer vir 'n nuwe geslag gebruikers. Die riglyne van die elfde uitgawe van die Afrikaanse Woordelys en Spelreels (AWS) (2017) is volledig in hierdie uitgawe verreken.

J.C. Steyn stel lesers in dié boek onder meer weer bekend aan die bykans vergete geskiedenis van die laaste dramatiese dae van Mei 1902, soos gesien deur die oë van twee vooraanstaande dramaturge; hy herontdek die lewe en werk van die veldprediker, J.D. Kestell; en stel ondersoek in na die persone wat verantwoordelik was vir die oprigting van die Nasionale Vrouemonument.

In die tweede afdeling benader hy die geskiedenis meer outobiografies en gee lesers 'n kykie in sy lewe as jong Vrystaatse seun van die Brandwaterkom. Dan volg tien korter rubrieke - elk met Steyn se kenmerkende fyn benadering tot interessanthede uit die verlede. Die werk word afgesluit met huldeblyke van oudkollegas, vriende en familie wat eer bring aan een van Afrikaans se grootste woordmeesters.

A NEW, BEAUTIFULLY ILLUSTRATED HARDBACK EDITION OF THE SUNDAY TIMES NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER, PUBLISHED ON ITS TENTH ANNIVERSARY. 'Witty and erudite ... stuffed with the kind of arcane information that nobody strictly needs to know, but which is a pleasure to learn nonetheless.' Nick Duerden, Independent. 'Particularly good ... Forsyth takes words and draws us into their, and our, murky history.' William Leith, Evening Standard. The Etymologicon is an occasionally ribald, frequently witty and unerringly erudite guided tour of the secret labyrinth that lurks beneath the English language. What is the actual connection between disgruntled and gruntled? What links church organs to organised crime, California to the Caliphate, or brackets to codpieces? Mark Forsyth's riotous celebration of the idiosyncratic and sometimes absurd connections between words is a classic of its kind: a mine of fascinating information and a must-read for word-lovers everywhere. 'Highly recommended' Spectator

One we've learned it as children few of us think much of the alphabet and its familiar sing-song order. And yet the order if the alphabet, that simple knowledge that we take for granted, plays a major role in our adult lives. From the school register to the telephone book, from dictionaries and encyclopaedia to library shelves, our lives are ordered from A to Z. Long before Google searches, this magical system of organization gave us the ability to sift through centuries of thought, knowledge and literature, allowing us to sort, to file, and to find the information we have, and to locate the information we need. In A Place for Everything, acclaimed historian Judith Flanders draws our attention to both the neglected ubiquity of the alphabet and the long, complex history of its rise to prominence. For, while the order of the alphabet itself became fixed very soon after letters were first invented, their ability to sort and store and organize proved far less obvious. To many of our forebears, the idea of of organizing things by the random chance of the alphabet rather than by established systems of hierarchy or typology lay somewhere between unthinkable and disrespectful. A Place for Everything fascinatingly lays out the gradual triumph of alphabetical order, from its possible earliest days as a sorting tool in the Great Library of Alexandria in the third century BCE, to its current decline in prominence in our digital age of Wikipedia and Google. Along the way, the reader is enlightened and entertained with a wonderful cast of unknown facts, characters and stories from the great collector Robert Cotton, who denominated his manuscripts with the names of the busts of the Roman emperors surmounting his book cases, to the unassuming sixteenth- century London bookseller who ushered in a revolution by listing his authors by 'sirname' first.

George Orwell, perhaps one of the most perceptive writers of the twentieth century, wrote extensively about English life and politics. This selection of his essays and journalism brings together his most provocative and insightful writing on England and Englishness. Part of the Macmillan Collector's Library; a series of stunning, clothbound, pocket-sized classics with gold foiled edges and ribbon markers. These beautiful books make perfect gifts or a treat for any book lover. This edition is edited and introduced by Professor Michael Gardiner. Orwell's interests were broad. He often wrote about everyday concerns such as transport, food and the weather. Turning to social issues, he exposed the plight of the poor and the unemployed. He dissected the idea of nationalism and he examined the failings of the Left. What emerges from his acute observation of English rituals, habits and attitudes is his belief that these are the very things with which the English people can defend themselves against oppression. His writing remains insightful and prescient to this day.

In hierdie boek- wat in twee dele gepubliseer is en gedeeltelik gebaseer is op E.H. Raidt se Afrikaans en sy Europese verlede - word opnuut gekyk na Afrikaans se veelkantige herkoms: die Europese geskiedenis van Afrikaans (grondig vernuwe en beduidend aangevul) én veral Afrikaans se Afrikaherkoms - oor die opbouproses sedert die 17de eeu om Afrikaans in 1925 as amptelike taal erken te kry, Afrikaans se ontwikkeling as volwaardige standaardtaal in die 20ste eeu en veral die aanneem van die funksies wat hiermee gepaard gaan, Afrikaans se ongelukkige apartheidsverlede en die bevrydings- en versoeningsprosesse wat hierna nodig was. Die wit verlede van Afrikaans word aangevul met die bruin en swart verlede sodat ʼn gedeelde verlede van die sprekers van Afrikaans na vore kom.

Die storie van Afrikaans is die biografie van Afrikaans soos dit op drie kontinente ontwikkel het: in Europa (waar die ontwikkeling van Nederlands as die basisvorm van Afrikaans gedokumenteer en uitgebeeld word), in Afrika (waar die 17de-eeuse Hollandse dialek met verloop van tyd onder eiesoortige omstandighede en onder invloed van verskeie faktore uiteindelik volwaardig Afrikaans geword het) en vanuit Asië (waar die impak van die taal van die slawe die wordende Afrikaans beïnvloed het tot die vorm wat dit wel geword het). Die outeurs gee aan die hand van talle illustrasies 'n nuwe, meer volledige en inklusiewe blik op Afrikaans se ingewikkelde verlede.

In Deel 1 is die Europese verlede van Afrikaans weergegee. In Deel 2 kom die Afrikaverlede van Afrikaans aan bod. Die boek verken paaie wat nog nie voorheen ontgin is nie en dit sal ʼn besliste bydrae tot die debat oor Afrikaans se verlede wees.

How do stories begin, and why? What are the conditions for writing fiction? Need, compulsion, a listener, opportunity, rhetoric … In The Snow Sleeper , the art and meaning of storytelling is illuminated in four magically interwoven tales of friendship. In each, a narrator's narrow vision is gradually broadened and transformed into piercing self-knowledge. The characters are linked each to the other in strange, recurring loops, drawing the reader into the depths of a beautiful snowstorm.

Educational preparation is currently steered by two oppositional forces in contemporary society: global connectedness and local diversity. The traditional notion that literacy entails the technical ability to decode abstract letters in order to recognise and form words and sentences is contested by the pedagogy of multiliteracies - that there is a wealth of linguistic and cultural pluralism in the world and that people can be part of multiple life contexts that overlap in interest, affiliation and education. Multiliteracies in education develops a pedagogical framework to weave multiliteracies into the fabric of the South African classroom. Multiliteracies in education takes the approach that knowledge is contextually situated and rapidly changing and diverse, which calls for new skills and flexibility, and the ability to work in teams. Chapters are sequenced according to the four pillars of the multiliteracies framework: overt instruction, situated practice, critical framing and transformed practice.
