Abstract:

This groundbreaking book deviates from the standard or "textbook" way
of looking at the history of the English language. Emphasis is placed
on a linguistic description of English in a much broader sense. A
range of international contributors provide accounts of the histories
of non-standard, non-British and non-American varieties. By
approaching and including non-formal styles and registers, and the
pragmatic and communicative aspects of English, it opens the door to
unbiased consideration of such topics as South African Indian English,
Southern Hemisphere Englishes, and Early Modern English women's
writing.
Watts' and Trudgill's collection shows how a focus on the
history of standard English dialect is to the detriment of those which
are from other areas of the world.
