Abstract:

Rajend Mesthrie examines the rise of a new variety of English among Indian
migrant workers indentured on the plantations of Natal in South Africa. 
Considering the historical background to, and linguistic consequences of,
language shift in an immigrant context, he draws significant parallels
between second language acquisition and the processes of pidginization and
creolization.  South African Indian English is compared with other dialects
in South Africa, with English in India, and with Englishes generally.
