Introduction to the Resolutions
of the Council of Policy of Cape of Good Hope


In some cases it is quite difficult if not impossible to trace unfamiliar words and their meaning in present-day Dutch sources. In order to limit the problem for each of the ten published volumes a glossary was compiled and inserted at the back of each volume. Although the Woordenboek der Nederlandsche Taal [Dictionary of the Dutch Language] served as the main source of reference, the word meanings and explanations are provided in Afrikaans. For the digital presentation the contents of the ten individual glossaries [ woordelyste/glossariums] were merged, repetitions deleted, key words distinguished and where necessary the meaning was extended.
