Our contribution commemorates this milestone with a re evaluation of this standard and wellknown reference work — in particular of the wordlist sections of spe,reels AWS.

AWS a hundred years young! | Language Centre

This article — the first of two afrikxanse offers a historical overview of the function, nature and scope of the wordlist as revealed in the ten different editions of the AWS.

For the overview we used the different editions from to of the AWS as primary source texts. An evaluation of the Afrikaans spelling rules falls outside the scope of the artichave an impact on which lemmas are included in the wordlist one of the main functions of the wordlist being to help people with their spelling problemswe looked briefly at the way in which they have been defined since The fundamental principles of the Afrikaans spelling system have essentially not changed, although they have periodically been reformulated.


From to commonly used pronunciation and tradition by which is also meant the ways in which the Afrikaans spelling system still reflects its history and relationship with Dutch spelling remained two key criteria for the inclusion of words in the wordlist.

In addition, the visible illustration and application of the spelling rules are important reasons for the inclusion or elimination of certain words. In the edition the main criterion for inclusion seems to be that the list must reflect contemporary written standard Afrikaans. No mention is made any longer of the commonly used pronunciation as guiding principle. With respect to its nature, the question was raised whether the wordlist can be regarded as a special kind of dictionary — one with a limited lemma list and minimal microstructural information.


Within the context of how best to describe this source, problematic or unclear aspects that were investigated were the basis for lemma selection — in other words, how exactly did the various language commissions determine what can or should be regarded as standard Afrikaans? This is arguably the most important criterion for arfikaanse.

In the treatment of these problematic cases the interaction between the three fundamental principles that inform the spelling rules are clearly illustrated. The main purpose — to help with spelling problems and to set certain norms and standards — and the size and complexity of the wordlist were explored.

That the wordlist occupies a very important place in every AWS is not disputed, and we conclude that the wordlist is a very valuable reference work.

It is not clear whether all users are aware of this. Users are therefore often forced to look for other sources of information on em issues. With these characteristics in mind, we evaluate the electronic version of the wordlist in Part 2.

This is done against the background of the current rapid development of theoretical lexicography and the increasing need of users to find the information that they need as quickly as possible.

In Part 2 the focus is very clearly on the user and his or her needs. Contact Us Send Feedback.
