Abstract:

Register Variation in Indian English constitutes the first
large-scale empirical investigation of an international variety of English.
Using a combination of the corpus compiled for this project and relevant
sections of ICE-India as its database, this work tests existing
descriptions and characterizations of English in India, and provides the
first empirical account of register variation in Indian English (or indeed,
any international variety of English). Included in this survey are
linguistic features that have been examined before and others that have
not. From an empirical standpoint, it comments on the process of
Indianization of the English used in India. The book will be of interest to
readers beyond specialists of Indian English as it is one of very few
studies to undertake a large-scale corpus analysis for the purpose of
dialect research. The book provides a model on which future studies of
international Englishes can be based.
