This accessible, single volume text provides a lively overview of
English around the world. The book is illustrated with fascinating
examples of varieties of English taken from fiction, popular culture,
newspapers, and transcriptions of the recordings on the accompanying
compact disc. It also includes an introduction to the principles of
linguistic variation, varieties of English as a second language, and
future trends. Nearly all areas of the world in which English is
spoken are represented including the American South, the Shetland
Islands, St. Kitts, and many others.
