Abstract:

This book addresses issues of authenticity, ecology and evolution in the
indigenised varieties of English. It describes Cameroon English within its own
natural internal and external ecology, and analyses it as a complete medium of
communication that represents a complete sociohistorical community. The
framework of filtration processes introduced in the book ushers the study
of post-colonial Englishes into the broader linguistic debate about the
status of non-native Englishes, making it possible to study them as fruits
of given sociohistorical contexts rather than as simple side effects of
improper education, faulty second language learning, or non-native deficits
in English proficiency.
