The Afrikaans of English-speaking university students: interlanguage perspectives
This article examines the syntactic performance of English-speaking university students who are learning Afrikaans for academic purposes. The learners' errors are discussed within the theoretical framework of interlanguage, and special attention is given to the analysis and explanation of these errors. Finally, the advantages and practical implications of teaching Afrikaans to English-speaking university students within a contrastive interlanguage paradigm are discussed.
