Abstract:

Kingsley Bolton uses early word lists, satirical cartoons and data
from journals and memoirs to uncover the forgotten history of English
in China, from the arrival of the first English-speaking traders in
the early seventeenth century to the present. Demonstrating how
contemporary Hong Kong English has its historical roots in Chinese
pidgin English, the book considers the changing status of English in
mainland China over time, particularly recent developments since 1997.

English Worldwide;
2. The Sociolinguistics of English in Late Colonial Hong Kong (1980 1997);
3. The Archaeology of 'Chinese Englishes' 1637-1949;
4. The Emergence of Hong Kong English as a 'New English';
5. Hong Kong, China, and Chinese Englishes;
Appendix 1: Chinese Dialects in China;
Appendix 2: Chinese Dialects in Guangdong (Canton) Province;
