It's officially the start of our festive holiday season and there will naturally be an influx of visitors to our beautiful city - visitors from other provinces in our country, as well as ones from beyond our borders. Of course we want everyone to feel welcome.
I have decided to provide some help to you, our dear visitors from all over, as you move around our city, attempting to understand the unique language which is spoken in our neck of the woods, as well as for when you try to get to grips with some of our cultural nuances.

Kanonafvurings by Taalmonument Gee Groot Aanstoot

Ons mense is ontsetlik Lief vir Afrikaans, maar ons taal wat ons so liefhet, het ontstaan uit geweld.
Die geboorte van Afrikaans was die dood van ‘n groot getal Khoe en San tale waarvan net ‘n paar nou oorleef en letterlik uit ‘n dreigende dood gered moet word.

Dit was Geweld teen Ons Khoe en San lewens, ons kultuur en ons tale asook geweld teen die lewens, kulture en tale van ons slawe voorouers uit ander Afrika-lande en die Asiatiese lande wat die grondslag gelê het vir die nuwe taal wat Ons Voorouers noodgedwone moes ontwikkel en waarvan ons ook later deur geweld onteien is asof ons geen deel in die ontstaan daarvan het nie.
