Abstract:

The spread of English around the world has been and continues to be both
rapid and unpredictable. World Englishes: The Study of New Linguistic
Varieties deals with this inescapable result of colonisation and
globalisation from a social and linguistic perspective. The main focus of
the book is on the second-language varieties of English that have developed
in the former British colonies of East and West Africa, the Caribbean,
South and South-East Asia. The book provides a historical overview of the
common circumstances that gave rise to these varieties, and a detailed
account of their recurrent similarities in structure, patterns of usage,
vocabulary and accents. Also discussed are debates about language in
education, the rise of English in China and Western Europe, and other
current developments in a world of global travel and migration. 



1. History: The spread of English; 
2. Structural features of New Englishes I: Morphology and phrasal syntax; 
3. Structural features of New Englishes II: Cross-clausal syntax and
syntactic theory; 
4. More on structure: Lexis, phonology, and optimality syntax; 
5. Pragmatics and discourse; 
6. Language contact and language acquisition issues in New English research; 
7. Conclusion: Current  trends in the spread of English.
