Product Description


'This book provides an excellent, informative introduction to the vexed question of English as a world language. It assesses the modern spread of the English language factually in an unbiased fashion and presents students with a wealth of exciting practical work that will enable them to develop a balanced perspective of the 'global' language English.' - Richard Watts, University of Berne 'The refusal to collude with cosy myths is a great strength of this book. The texts and exercises are very carefully chosen to be interesting and intellectually challenging and should work well with students from different levels and ranges of experience.'- Mark Sebba, University of Lancaster, UK

Essential introduction. 7 Feb. 2007
By Dr Fox - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is absolutely the best introductory book on the vast subject of World Englishes currently available. It covers a wide variety of topics and gives pointers to further reading. It also collects an excellent selection of essays by other scholars in the field. The layout is thoughtful it and can be used as a course book.

If you are studying languages, language teaching or applied linguistics this is a must buy. Even if you aren't it is a facinating read.
