Abstract:

Ugandan English is a variety that has scarcely been noticed in past research.
This timely volume brings together African and European scholars in a
first-ever collection of articles that offer comprehensive discussions of the
historical and present-day sociolinguistics of English in Uganda and
fine-grained analyses of the structural characteristics of and attitudes to
this hitherto largely unknown variety. Using rich archive, corpus, and
interview data as well as ethnographic and observational methods, the various
contributions paint a comprehensive picture of Ugandan English as distinct
from other East African Englishes and as characterized by nativisation despite
a still strong exonormative orientation, reflecting the modern nation’s status
as a post-protectorate under the influence of globalisation. Apart from
advancing our understanding of Ugandan English itself, the individual chapters
contribute to theoretical debates on language contact and variation as regards
the influence of substrate languages, founder populations, language ideologies
and socio-economic factors.
