Abstract

<b>Language and the power dynamics of the Afrikaner : an anthropological perspective</b> <br>This article deals with the relation between language and power in the (re)production of Afrikaner culture. Against a historical background the author first considers current Afrikaners' uncertainty about a suitable way to understand "themselves". Secondly, the use of Afrikaans to establish and maintain the Afrikaner's position of power is reviewed. Thirdly, it is argued that it is anthropologically important to realise that people themselves give active content to their destiny; they are not passive victims of inevitable, arbitrary processes of assimilation, identification or the abuse of power.

Hierdie artikel handel oor die verband tussen taal en mag in die (re)produksie van Afrikanerkultuur. Teen 'n historiese agtergrond word eerstens gekyk na die huidige onsekerheid onder Afrikaners betreffende hul selfverstaan. Tweedens word die gebruik van Afrikaans in die vestiging en handhawing van die Afrikaner se magsposisie in oënskou geneem. Derdens word beredeneer dat dit antropologies belangrik is om te besef dat mense self aktief inhoud gee aan hulle (lots)bestemming en dat hulle nie passiewe slagoffers van onvermydelike, arbitrêre prosesse van assimilasie, identifikasie of magsmisbruik is nie.
