Abstract:

The English Language in Canada examines the current status, history and
principal features of Canadian English, focusing on the 'standard' variety
heard across the country today. The discussion of the status of Canadian
English considers the number and distribution of its speakers, its relation
to French and other Canadian languages and to American English, its status
as the expressive medium of English Canadian culture and its treatment in
previous research. The review of its history concentrates on the historical
roots and patterns of English-speaking settlement that established Canadian
English and influenced its character in each region of Canada. The analysis
of its principal features compares the vocabulary, pronunciation and
grammar of Canadian English to standard British and American English.
Subsequent chapters examine variation and change in the vocabulary and
pronunciation of Canadian English, while a final chapter briefly considers
the future of Canadian English.
