Varieties of English


Product Description
Product Details


"Overall the book is enjoyable and inspiring. I consider it a useful educational tool that is highly appropriate for inclusion in a wide array of courses, including the history of English, historical and comparative linguistics, language typology, and language documentation. This impressive publication makes progress towards rethinking assumptions that associate the development of contemporary Englishes with eurocentric language ideologies, at the same time that it encourages conversation across research traditions. Students and instructors will appreciate the global focus, and the inclusion of rich written and audio data."Don E. Walicek in: Journal of Pidgin and Creole Languages 24:2/2009 "This volume, together with its companion volumes, is an invaluable addition to the bookshelf of anyone interested in the varieties of English. Students and scholars alike will find it a useful reference tool; its stated audience of students makes it a perfect textbook resource for teachers. [...] The interactive CD-ROM that comes with the volume contains information and recordings for all the varieties described in the four volumes. This addition makes even a single volume an amazing teaching and reference tool."Jakob R. E. Leimgruber in: Linguist List 20.2281
