Die Namibische Sprache developed from Germany in an alternative history setting. Far from Germany and that country's language, the German language in Namibia has a different evolution than the language in Germany. Because of other tribes and other colonists there were also words from English, Afrikaans, Zulu and Xhosa entering the language. It got also simplified. For example the verb system and the noun system has less irregularities (except the auxiliary verbs) than the German language. Also the set of phonemes were separated from the German language in Germany and got more influenced by the Afrikaans phonology.
