Title: International English
Subtitle: A Guide to the Varieties of Standard English 4th Edition
Written By: Jean Hannah
Peter Trudgill
URL: http://www.oup-usa.org/isbn/0340808349.html
Description:

Over the years since first publication in 1982, International English has
established its place as the only text which gives a good overview of the
linguistics characteristics of varieties of English around the world. In
order to keep up with research that has been conducted over the past 6
years, the authors have completely reworked and rewritten their chapter on
the Caribbean. The book now also includes a new chapter on "lesser-known
Englishes" covering those varieties spoken in such places as the Channel
Islands, Bermuda, and the Bahamas as well as African countries such as
Botswana and Namibia. This new material, coupled with a thorough updating
of the remaining text and references ensures that the book will remain a
favorite and indispensible resource for teachers and students for many
years to come.
