This is the first ever volume to compile sociolinguistic and historical
information on lesser-known, and relatively ignored, native varieties of
English around the world. Exploring areas as diverse as the Pacific, South
America, the South Atlantic and West Africa, it shows how these varieties
are as much part of the big picture as major varieties and that their
analysis is essential for addressing some truly important issues in
linguistic theory, such as dialect obsolescence and death, language birth,
dialect typology and genetic classification, patterns of diffusion and
transplantation and contact-induced language change. It also shows how
close interwoven fields such as social history, contact linguistics and
variationist sociolinguistics are in accounting for their formation and
maintenance, providing a thorough description of the lesser-known varieties
of English and their relevance for language spread and change.
