"Must Read!!!" -Today's Books, July 1, 2006
mention- Today's Books- Must Read/ September 1, 2006
"As a whole, this anthology serves both as an useful primer to some of the most controversial topics in the field and as a thought-provoking series of chapters addressing core concerns of world Englishes scholars: standards, teaching, intelligibility, and policy. While few entries contribute entirely unfamiliar material, they do provide an accessible refresher for those wanting to become up-to-date in the field. And especially welcome in a text about world Englishes topics is the diversity of the authors themselves: while the majority are Inner Circle-based scholars, only two are working from the United States. This diversity, along with the variety of topics and opinions, makes this accessible and engaging volume worthy of thoughtful consideration of its many provocative ideas." -Tracey McHenry, World Englishes, 2009
