The Dictionary Unit for South African English
An Affiliated Institute of RHODES UNIVERSITY, GRAHAMSTOWN, SOUTH AFRICA (Association incorporated under Section 21)
The Dictionary Unit for South African English (DSAE) was established in 1969 to collect and record English as it is used in South Africa. Since then, it has compiled extensive archives which reflect the diverse influences which shape South African English. Material from these archives forms the basis for both specialised and general dictionaries which the DSAE produces in conjunction with commercial publishers. Staff also monitor developments in English throughout the world, and maintain contact with international centres for the study of English.
