CONFERENCES: ENGLISH IS AN ASIAN LANGUAGE

In 1996 and 1997 The Macquarie Library Pty Ltd, publishers of the

aim of the conferences was to -

 the future in government, economics, trade and education in
 South-East Asia

*	analyse what impact the new Englishes of the region might have in
 reflecting the culture of these language communities

*	assess the requirements for an English-language dictionary for
 this region.

The topics covered in relation to the English of each country were -

*	History

*	Pronunciation

*	Lexical items

*	Standardness, particularly in the areas of newspaper publishing,
 book publishing and education, with comments on the relative
 importance of standards derived from within the country and those
 derived externally

*	Business English
