Abstract


This article investigates language visibility as a factor in the standardisation of geographical names in South Africa, against the background of the current debate concerning the transformation of geographical names, and also of a proposal for the recognition of parallel names (with the old name incorporated alongside of the new one). The greater part of the article is devoted to an overview of the development of policy regarding the standardisation of geographical names in South Africa. Finally the article reveals shortcomings in respect of the relationship between the policy regarding geographical names, and the general language policy of the country.

Hierdie artikel ondersoek taalsigbaarheid as faktor by die standaardisasie van geografiese name in Suid-Afrika. Dit word gedoen teen die agtergrond van die huidige debat rondom die transformasie van geografiese name en van 'n voorstel om parallelle name (die oue naas die nuwe) te erken. Die grootste gedeelte van die artikel word gewy aan 'n oorsig van die ontwikkeling van beleid rondom die standaardisasie van geografiese name in Suid-Afrika. Uiteindelik lê die artikel leemtes bloot wat betref die verband tussen die beleid rondom geografiese name en die algemene taalbeleid van die land.
