Abstract:

This detailed survey of Brunei English reflects the burgeoning academic interest
in the many new varieties of English which are fast evolving around the world.
Wholly up to date, the study is based on careful analysis of a substantial dataset
that provides real-life examples of usage to illustrate the narrative throughout.
As well as a thorough account of the pronunciation, grammar, vocabulary usage,
and discourse patterns of Brunei English, the volume explores its historical and
educational background and current developmental trends, providing an in-depth
review of the patterns of English usage within this multilingual, oil-rich
society on the north-western coast of Borneo. Written in a non-technical style
throughout that will assist non-specialists wishing to grasp the fundamentals of
this unique brand of the English language, the work is a worthy addition to
Springer’s series on multilingual education that plugs a gap in the coverage of
the numerous varieties of English being used across South East Asia.

“The authors bring renewed and badly needed attention to the long-overlooked
development of Brunei English. Their examination of the variety not only
documents the features and functions of English within Brunei society, it also
suggests the development of regional or global varieties of English that extend
beyond Brunei, and even beyond South East Asia.” Andrew Moody, University of Macau
