Varieties of English world-wide : where we stand
Görlach, Manfred

Fecha: 1998
Resumen: The paper summarizes the state of scholarly research in one of the most recent and most stimulating branches of sociolinguistics. Criteria which help to show whether a variety (or an utterance) is English are discussed in detail before the distinctiveness of individual Englishes is focused on. Regular developments of New Englishes -innovation, retention and rejection of linguistic features- are treated with data from the U. S. , Canada, Australia and South Africa, with particular attention given to pronunciation and lexis. Forms and functions of English are then treated with regard to second- and foreign-language countries. Finally, there is a critical look at what we have achieved and what remains to be done.
