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 (proposed) renaming of Bloemfontein, Louis Trichardt, Pretoria, Port Elizabeth and Johannesburg International Airport to the incident of Johann Rupert withdrawing his advertisements from a British magazine, and from the saga on mother-tongue education at schools to the language policy in the judicial system and the success of the South African films Yesterday and U-Carmen eKhayelitsha, the SALRM 2005 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.An affidavit is a judicial document i.e. a witness statement albeit by [an] SARS official, and is therefore not [an] SARS ...
