South African Language Rights Monitor 2002

The South African Language Rights Monitor (SALRM) Project surveys the mainstream newspapers of South Africa with a view to compile annual reports on the developments on the language front in the country. While the main focus is on language rights and language (rights) activism, the yearly Monitor also covers other language-related problems, including name changes, as well as aspects of language promotion.

For anybody interested in subjects ranging from the medium of instruction at schools (Middelburg Primary School, FH Odendaal High School) to the renaming of universities (Potchefstroom University for Christian Higher Education to North-West University and Rand Afrikaans University to the University of Johannesburg), and from the (proposed) renaming of Louis Trichardt, Pretoria and Warmbad to the status of African language in public broadcasting, the SALRM 2002 provides a rich source of information.

The SALRM Project is housed in the Department of Language Management and Language Practice at the University of the Free State.
