Format: Paperback
I bought an earlier edition of this work, when still a student at the university. This edition is even better, with its updates and new information.

It is no good thinking of Engliah as a lingua franca you can use anywhere if you are not prepared for its variants. Then you cannot understand or be understood. This book gives you insight of a theoretical nature you can also put to work in practical terms.

It is very thorough. I particularly like the distinctions it makes for English even close to home. You sail off the big island and the Channel may have some surprises for you.

Summing up, I would recommend this book to students and practitioners alike. Scholarly, yet practical!

HASH(0x8b13a6d8) out of 5 stars rare material but not international enough 31 July 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio Cassette
Audio material like this cassette can be a great asset when teaching "English as an international language." Unfortunately, there is not much audio material around so this cassette will probably be the best you can get.
However, for a casette dealing with INTERNATIONAL English the recordings focus too much on inner cirlce varieties. There is no sample from Nigerian English, for instance. It would also been interesting to have samples from some non-native speakers from Europe or Asia.
Also, the speakers only repeat the sample text. While this enables one to distinguish features of the variety in question quite clearly, it also tends to become quite dull. Additionally to the sample-text some other speech samples (like jokes, for instance) would lighten things up a bit.
