Abstract:

As a result of colonization, many varieties of English now exist around the
world. Legacies of Colonial English brings together a team of
internationally-renowned scholars to discuss the role of British dialects
in both the genesis and subsequent history of postcolonial Englishes.
Considering the input of Scottish, English and Irish dialects, they closely
examine a wide range of Englishes - including those in North and South
America, South Africa, Asia, Australia, and New Zealand - and explain why
many of them still reflect non-standard British usage from the distant
past. Complete with a checklist of dialect features, a detailed glossary
and set of general references on the topic of postcolonial Englishes, this
book will be an invaluable source to scholars and students of English
Language and Linguistics, particularly those interested in
sociolinguistics, historical linguistics and dialectology.
