Afrikaans is the language of the West Germanic group of the Indo-European language family, which originated in South Africa on the basis of the Dutch language. It was used by Dutch and German settlers and the peoples enslaved by them. It is currently spoken in South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zambia and Zimbabwe. According to 2010 data, the total number of Afrikaans speakers ranges from 15 to 23 million people. Since the mid-1990s, his role in education and public life has declined significantly, but he continues to occupy an important place, for example, in the media. It is estimated that between 90 and 95% of the Afrikaans vocabulary is of Dutch origin, and there are also loanwords from other languages, including German and the Khoisan languages of South Africa. Currently, Afrikaans is one of the 12 official languages of the Republic of South Africa.
