Abstract:

This book is a descriptive account of English as it is used in India. Indian
English is a second language to most of its speakers. In its 400-year history
it has acquired its own character, yet still looks to native varieties of English
for norms. The complex nature of Indian English, which is not really a
monolithic entity, is discussed in this book. The book also makes a
distinction between what are considered to be standard and non-standard
varieties, and provides an overview of the salient features.
Indian English includes:
- A discussion of the sociolinguistic and cultural factors
- The history of the establishment of English in India, bringing it up to modern
times
- A description of the linguistic aspects: phonetics and phonology, lexical,
discourse and morphosyntactic features
- Samples of written English from a range of contexts
- Samples of speech
- An annotated bibliography divided according to topic.
