上个世纪的英国人就像这个世纪的美国人，带着他们浮夸虚伪傲慢横行世界，嘲弄鄙视其他文化。One thing about the English that disappoints him, that he will not imitate, is their contempt for Afrikaans.

For his part, he makes no concessions, even among the English: he brings out the Afrikaans words as they ought to be brought out, with all their hard consonants and difficult vowels.
