""Oumense het blotvoet gebruik"": Dutch relics in the regional varieties of Afrikaans. The Bureau of the WAT has developed a survey of all varieties of Afrikaans. One part thereof is the survey of Dutch language relics in the Afrikaans regional varie_ties which is discussed here. From earlier surveys it has been shown that many Dutch relics are present; the Dutch language and in particular the dialect from Holland from the 16th and 17th centuries have had a strong influence on (the origin of) Afrikaans. Questionnaires were used to check with 183 informants from the Northern and the Western Cape whether Dutch relics are still present in the varieties they use, on the fonetic as well as the lexical level.
