Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

Title: The Routledge Handbook of World Englishes
Written By: Angela Kirkpatrick
URL: http://www.routledge.com/books/details/9780415470391/
Series Title: Routledge Handbooks in Applied Linguistics
Description:

The Routledge Handbook of World Englishes constitutes a comprehensive
introduction to the study of world Englishes drawing on the expertise of
leading authors within the field.

The handbook is structured in nine sections covering historical
perspectives, core issues and topics and new debates which together provide
a thorough overview of the field taking into account the new directions in
which the discipline is heading.

Among the key themes covered are the development of English as a lingua
franca among speakers for whom English is a common but not first language,
the parallel development of English as a medium of instruction in
educational institutions throughout the world and the role of English as
the international language of scholarship and scholarly publishing, as well
as the development of ‘computer-mediated’ Englishes, including
‘cyberprose’. The handbook also includes a substantial introduction and
conclusion from the editor.

The Routledge Handbook of World Englishes is the ideal resource for
postgraduate students of applied linguistics as well as those in related
degrees such as applied English language and TESOL/TEFL.
