Abstract:

The book is a sociolinguistic case study of District Six, an
inner-city neighbourhood in Cape Town characterized by language mixing
and switching of English and Afrikaans. Its early inhabitants included
indigenous people, freed slaves of African and Asian origin, and
immigrants from Europe and elsewhere. The ravages of apartheid
affected the residents' attitudes towards their languages in various
ways, which are described. The book examines the norms and practices
regarding language choice for various functions and domains in the
only surviving sector of District Six.
