Abstract:

When considering the structure of New Englishes which have evolved in -
multilingual, mostly post-colonial - contexts of Asia (thus, Asian Englishes), the
significant factors to be considered are: 1) the variety/ies of the English lexifier
that entered the local context; 2) the nature of transmission of English to the
local population; and 3) the local, i.e. substrate, languages of the community in
which the New English emerges. This third factor is the focus of the five papers
in this volume: they investigate the structure of Asian varieties of English by
exploring the relationship between the typological profile of substrate languages
in the specific linguistic ecology and the grammatical features of the emerging
contact variety of English.The contributions to this volume were originally
published in "English World-Wide" 30:2 (2009).
