Abstract:

The theme of this collection is a discussion of the notions of 'norms' and
'standards', which are studied from various different angles, but always in
relation to the English language. These terms are to be understood in a
very wide sense, allowing discussions of topics such as the norms we orient
to in social interaction, the benchmark employed in teaching, or the
development of English dialects and varieties over time and space and their
relation to the standard language. The collection is organized into three
parts, each of which covers an important research field for the study of
norms and standards.

Part 1 is entitled "English over time and space" and is further divided
into three thematic subgroups: standard and non-standard features in
English varieties and dialects; research on English standardization
processes; and issues of standards and norms in oral production. Part 2
deals with "English usage in non-native contexts," and Part 3 is dedicated
to "Issues on politeness and impoliteness." The notions of standards and
norms are equally important concepts for historical linguists,
sociolinguists with a variationist background, applied linguists,
pragmaticians, and discourse analysts.
