Abstract:

Contemporary Indian English: Variation and Change offers the first
comprehensive description of Indian English and its emerging regional
standard in a corpus-linguistic framework. Drawing on a wealth of authentic
spoken and written data from India (including the Kolhapur Corpus and the
International Corpus of English), this book explores the dynamics of
variation and change in the vocabulary and grammar of contemporary Indian
English. The aims are to document the extent of lexical and grammatical
nativization at the beginning of the twenty-first century and compare
contemporary Indian English to other varieties around the world (for
example British and American English). The results are relevant to
sociolinguists, variationists and lexicologists seeking to investigate
ongoing language change in emerging standard varieties of English. With its
strong empirical foundation and its comparative outlook, the book is also
of interest to anyone looking for an introduction to the corpus-based
description of varieties of English.
