Transcript Josh: Josh Clark Chuck: Charles W. “Chuck” Bryant Die reg op vryheid van uitdrukking - Die Hervormer Elkeen het die reg op vryheid van uitdrukking, aldus artikel 16(1) van die Grondwet van Suid-Afrika. Hierdie fundamentele reg, ook bekend as vryheid van spraak of spraakvryheid, hoewel dit ook ander uitdrukkingsvorme soos simbole, kleredrag en kuns insluit, word wyd beskou as die spilpunt waarom ’n grondwetlike demokrasie draai.

Welcome to Literacy! My name is Kersti Börjars and I am a professor of Linguistics at the University of Manchester. Together with one of our students, Alex Webb, I have put together these web pages about language. ‘Linguistics’ you may wonder, what on earth is that?! Well, sometimes the word ‘linguist’ is used for people who are good at learning foreign languages, but that is not the way we use it here. Linguistics is the study of language – that includes things like the history of language, the meaning and structure of words and phrases, what sounds are used in languages and what the similarities and differences are between all of the 5000-6000 languages in the world!
