Afrikaans (UK: , US: , English meaning: African) is a West Germanic language spoken in South Africa, Namibia and, to a lesser extent, Botswana, Zambia and Zimbabwe. It evolved from the Dutch vernacular of Holland (Hollandic dialect) spoken by the European (Dutch, French and German) settlers and their slaves in South Africa, where it gradually began to develop distinguishing characteristics in the course of the 18th century. It is considered to be a developed creole language. Afrikaans linguistics researchers maintain that Afrikaans, originally being a peasant language, is only partially creole.
