Abstract: This paper addresses the issues of language planning and implementation in South Africa. After considering the relationship between status and corpus planning, I argue that status planning should be complemented with corpus planning as this is the most accepted modern first step to address the problem of policy implementation. Corpus planning involves developing corpus or body of a language and the development of teaching material. Status and corpus planning are closely linked since languages need to be accorded a certain status in order to be developed properly. Corpus planning is also associated with modernizing a language in order for it to be used in all domains, including science and technology. Therefore, in this article I also argue that creating new terms and encouraging the use of languages in all domains require the use of modern conventions.
