Oorlams is an Afrikaans based creole language spoken in the Republic of South Africa and Namibia, by the Oorlam people.
Some scholars consider Afrikaans a creole language, so Oorlams would be a creolized creole language. Idependently of whether Afrikaans is to be regarded as a creole of Dutch or not, certain sectors of the non-white population speak a variety of Afrikaans called Oorlams, dialects which betray a greater number of creole features than standard Afrikaans.
