dc.description.abstract The aim of this study is the description of the dialect Oranjerivierafrikaans as it was conveyed in the unpublished play "Broerse" by Hans du Plessis. "Broerse" was the first play in Oranjerivierafrikaans. The development and growth of Oranjerivierafrikaans and the people who speak it are studied. The syntactical, morphological, lexical and pronunciation variants are studied to determine the correctness of the portrayal of the dialect. The possibilities of growth in the characters' language ability are also described. There are three characters in the play. Adam and Willem are brothers who are both in love with Robyn. Adam and Robyn both live in Lekkertjank, a Griqua community. Adam is a petrol attendant and Robyn is a teacher. Willem has left the community and returns after his mother's death. He introduces himself as a professor in Afrikaans. Adam and Robyn speak Oranjerivierafrikaans, while Willem uses Standard Afrikaans. He only uses Oranjerivierafrikaans as a way to get closer to Adam. A comparison between "Broerse" and Kanna hy kô hystoe is obvious. The role of variations of the dialect and "Broerse" as a play are also looked at. en_US
