Reprint. [First: 1957] From the cover: “Afrikaans, one of the official languages of the Republic of South Africa, is the youngest Indo-Germanic language. It is closely allied to Dutch, from which it developed spontaneously in the course of the past three centuries. It is also related to English, both in origin — witness the many words like boek, sing and skip that are similar in the two languages — and in the simplification of the grammar, e.g. the dropping of inflections and declensions.
