Afrikaans is a West Germanic language, mainly spoken in South Africa and Namibia. It is a daughter language of Dutch, originating in its 17th century dialects. Although Afrikaans borrowed from languages such as Malay, Portuguese, the Bantu languages and the Khoisan languages, 90 to 95 percent of Afrikaans vocabulary is ultimately of Dutch origin. Differences with Dutch lie in the more regular morphology, grammar, and spelling of Afrikaans. There is a degree of mutual intelligibility between the two languages, although it is easier for Dutch-speakers to understand Afrikaans than the other way around (Wikipedia).
