'n Moontlike model vir die bewerking van idiome in tweetalige woordeboeke
L Potgieter
Lexikos , 2008,
Abstract: Opsomming: Woordeboeke is belangrike en noodsaaklike hulpmiddels vir vertalers, maar tog het baie vertalers gemengde gevoelens veral oor tweetalige woordeboeke. Terwyl hulle aan die een kant nie werklik daarsonder kan werk nie, bied tweetalige woordeboeke aan die ander kant dikwels vir vertalers min of geen leiding nie. Dit blyk ook dat tweetalige woordeboeke 'n onvoldoende hulpmiddel vir professionele vertalers by die vertaling van idiome is. Die vertaling van idiome behels meer as net die vertaling van enkelwoorde. In hierdie artikel word 'n moontlike model aangebied om die bewerking van idiome in tweetalige woordeboeke te help verbeter. Sleutelwoorde: IDIOOM, TWEETALIGE WOORDEBOEK, VERTAALEKWIVALWENT, ABSOLUTE EKWIVALENSIE, GEDEELTELIKE EKWIVALENSIE, DIVERGENSIE, ZERO-EKWIVALENSIE, SURROGAATEKWIVALENSIE, REGISTERVERSKILLE, ONVASTHEDE, TAALBOUSELS

Example Sentences in Bilingual School Dictionaries
L Potgieter
Lexikos , 2012,
Abstract: Dictionaries are written for a specific user group and the content and presentation must therefore be directed/aimed at that specific target group. In the past dictionaries were often compiled without the lexicographers really taking time and researching the intended users and their specific needs. School dictionaries especially were often compiled after very little or no attention being paid to the users and their needs. This article will look at the role of example sentences in dictionary articles, different types of example sentences as well as the criteria for example sentences in bilingual school dictionaries in order to ensure that the final product is natural, typical, informative, intelligible and of use to the user.

Does Johnson's Prescriptive Approach Still Have a Role to Play in Modern-Day Dictionaries?
RH Gouws, L Potgieter
Lexikos , 2010,
Abstract: Samuel Johnson's dictionary (1755) confirmed both the status of dictionaries as authoritative sources of (linguistic) knowledge and the prescriptive approach in lexicography. This approach prevailed for a long time. During the last decades the descriptive approach came to the fore, aptly supported by the increased reliance on lexicographic corpora. Modern-day lexicography has also witnessed the introduction of a third approach, i.e. the proscriptive approach, which includes features of both the prescriptive and the descriptive approach. This article investigates the occurrence of the prescriptive, descriptive and proscriptive approaches in modern-day dictionaries. A distinction is made between dictionaries focusing on language for general purposes and dictionaries focusing on languages for special purposes. It is shown that users rely on dictionaries as prescriptive reference sources and expect lexicographers to provide them with an answer to the specific question that prompted the dictionary consultation process. It is argued that knowledgeable dictionary users must be able to achieve an unambiguous retrieval of information and must be able to rely on the dictionary to satisfy their specific cognitive or communicative needs. Here the proscriptive approach plays an important role.
Evaluation of community knowledge, attitudes, practices and perceptions relating to water quality and safety in Luvuvhu catchment of South Africa
L. Nare,N. Potgieter
Journal of Environmental Science and Water Resources , 2013,
Abstract: The Health Belief model says for communities to take part in an activity, they need to perceive the risk of failing to take part and the benefits associated with taking part. A study was carried out in Luvuvhu catchment of South Africa to evaluate community knowledge, attitudes, practices and perceptions relating to water quality and safety. The study was divided into two parts. The first part involved a population of over 8000 people and participatory tools were used to speed up the data collection process. The participants were divided into “sessions” of 45 people each. Each session was divided into 3 groups of 15 people each and each group was then given an assignment to work on and write the findings on flipcharts. Each group then presented at a plenary and the research assistants recorded the findings. The second part was based on the findings from the first part of the study. One major finding was that the communities relied on the physical appearance of water to decide whether the water is safe or not for domestic use. Therefore, the second study aimed at determining the point at which the communities would stop using water for various domestic uses based on the turbidity of the water. Samples of the water with predetermined turbidity values were shown to 1000 participants and each of the participants was asked to indicate where he or she would use the water for various domestic uses such as drinking, cooking, bathing and washing utensils. Although the communities had a wealth of knowledge and practices relating to water quality and safety, their perception of safety using turbidity as an indicator did not tally with scientifically accepted guidelines. Some participants were willing to accept water with turbidity values as high as 39 nephelometric turbidity units (NTU) for drinking which is above the recommended maximum turbidity levels in water for domestic use in South African National Standards (SANS 241) of 5 NTU. The communities in Luvuvhu catchment are at risk of contracting water borne diseases and they require health education to raise their level of awareness regarding water quality and safety issues.
Management competencies in higher education: Perceived job importance in relation to level of training required
Ingrid L. Potgieter,Melinde Coetzee
South African Journal of Human Resource Management , 2010, DOI: 10.4102/sajhrm.v8i1.306
Abstract: Orientation: The increasing changes and demands placed on higher education institutions in the 21st century and resultant impact on the roles and responsibilities of heads of department (HODs) have led to an increasing emphasis on the development of core HOD management competencies. Research purpose: The aim of this article is to determine the relationship between a specific set of HOD managerial competencies identified as being important for the job and the level of training required in terms of these competencies. Motivation for the study: Research has provided evidence that HODs are often ill-prepared for their managerial role, which requires the development of specific management competencies to enable them to fulfil their roles effectively. Research design, approach and method: A non-experimental quantitative survey design approach was followed and correlational data analyses were performed. A cross-sectional sample of 41 HODs of 22 departments from various faculties of a higher education institution in Gauteng participated in this study. The Management Competency Inventory (MCI) of Visser (2009) was applied as a measure. Main findings: The Pearson product-moment analysis indicated that there is a significant relationship between the competencies indicated as being important for the job and the level of training required. Practical/Managerial implications: Training needs of HODs should be formally assessed and the depth of training required in terms of the identified management competencies should be considered in the design of training programmes. Contributions/Value-add: The information obtained in this study may potentially serve as a foundation for the development of an HOD training programme in the South African higher education environment.

Kolmogorov complexity and symmetric relational structures
W. L. Fouché,P. H. Potgieter
Computer Science , 2004,
Abstract: We study partitions of Fra\"{\i}ss\'{e} limits of classes of finite relational structures where the partitions are encoded by infinite binary sequences which are random in the sense of Kolmogorov, Chaitin and Solomonoff. It is shown that partition by a random sequence of a Fra\"{\i}ss\'{e} limit preserves the limit property of the object.
A Proposed Alternative Suggestion for the Disposal of Used Cooking Oil
J.H. Potgieter,S.S. Potgieter-Vermaak,D.D. Tona,L. Anelich
Journal of Applied Sciences , 2004,
Abstract: The control of over-used cooking oil presents a number of problems. Not only are there health issues to consider, the assessment of the degree of degradation also requires tedious and laborious chemical analysis procedures. Once the degree of degradation is established, the disposal or recycling of the used cooking oil presents another huge dilemma. This research note proposes a fast and relatively easy infrared spectroscopic method to measure the amount of waste products formed in the cooking oil as a result of degradation during its use and re-use. It also offers an economic and environmentally sound proposal for its disposal, which can be applied universally all over the world.
Overview of the fire management policy of the Kruger National Park
H.C. Biggs,A.L.F. Potgieter
Koedoe : African Protected Area Conservation and Science , 1999, DOI: 10.4102/koedoe.v42i1.227
Abstract: New developments in fire management policy in the Kruger National Park are sketched against the background of changing attitudes towards ecosystem management. The experimental burning plots established in the mid-1950s are discussed briefly, as is the almost forty-year era of rotational block- burning. The lightning-driven fire policy initiated in 1992 and currently aimed at by park management is discussed, with comments on its early performance. More recent revision of the management plan stressed maximisation of appropriate research benefits from the experimental burning plots, con- doned the lightning approach for the present, but stressed the absolute necessity of the park not finding itself in the 1992 position again, where a major change in policy has to be made with no comparative evidence from other systems. To this end, a major landscape-scale fire management trial has been planned for implementation starting in April 2000. It is sheduled to run over a twenty-year period, and will be placed at four localities representing different major landscapes in the park. It will compare the effects of three different fire systems (lightning, patch mosaic, and range condition burning systems) on biodiversity elements crucial to the park's mission. The rationale for, layout of, and criteria for deciding on the outcome of the trial are discussed, as well as the trade-offs that were made to enable the trial to be of such a large scale and still fit into overall park planning. The impact of the trial on the park's monitoring programme is discussed.
