Abstract:

'The Mouton World Atlas of Variation in English (WAVE)' presents grammatical
variation in spontaneous spoken English, mapping 235 features in 48 varieties
of English (traditional dialects, high-contact mother tongue Englishes, and
indiginized second-language Englishes) and 26 English-based Pidgins and
Creoles in eight Anglophone world regions (Africa, Asia, Australia, British
Isles, the Caribbean, North America, the Pacific, and the South Atlantic). The
analyses of the 74 varieties are based on descriptive materials, naturalistic
corpus data, and native speaker knowledge.
