    • 1905, M. Junod quoted in Journal of the African Society, Macmillan and Co.; Volume V., page #10:
      When you see the ‘ patois ’ of our own civilised countries surviving for centuries side by side with a literary and official language which ought to have killed them, a fortiori, you must believe in the same survival of the South African idiomata which are so entirely different from the Aryan languages.
