Description

Outside the classroom, not constrained by formal grammatical rules, young people speak freely in a language that they understand well. This title contains isiXhosa and isiZulu short stories, dramas and poems written by Grade 8 and Grade 9 urban learners who took part in a competition in which they were asked to write on a topic of their own choice in the way they speak. Their writings tackle critical issues affecting them as the youth as well as the entire cross-section of society. The topics include: HIV/Aids; education; drug abuse; self-respect and respect for others; appreciation of one's own culture; women issues. This title will also appeal to anyone interested in linguistic research in fields such as multilingualism, change of language over time and the influence of one language on another.
