About this product
- DescriptionSouth Africa has just entered a new era of multicultural cooperation. But until w it has been dominated by a white, Afrikaner mirity, which must try to give up its deep-rooted ideology. This investigation looks into this ideology by means of the dominant metaphors used in four major newspapers. The study concludes that the metaphors Afrikaners live by are t those of apartheid, but rather those of a world of rural self-containment reflecting the 19th century rather than the 20th century experiences of the organisation of life, work, and society.
- Author BiographyThe Author: Rene Dirven now teaches English linguistics and applied linguistics at the Gerhard Mercator University of Duisburg, but until 1985 at the University of Trier.
