"Met hierdie boek bevestig J.C. Steyn sy posisie as een van die belangrikste Afrikaanse skrywers oor taalkrisisse en taalontwikkeling, oor die belang van die eie taal as 'n tuiste vir identiteit en as weg tot volledige menslikheid. Elkeen wat vir Afrikaans omgee, behoort dit te lees." Chris van der Merwe, Emeritus Professor in Afrikaans and Dutch, University of Cape Town
