ABSTRACT

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. Key words: identity, Afrikaans, space, multilingualism, language varieties, ‘Coloured’.
