Book Information

   

Title: Chinese Englishes
Subtitle: A Sociolinguistic History
Written By: Kingsley Bolton
URL: http://us.cambridge.org/linguistics
Series Title: Studies in English Language
Description:

Kingsley Bolton uses early word lists, satirical cartoons and data from
journals and memoirs to uncover the forgotten history of English in China,
from the arrival of the first English-speaking traders in the early
seventeenth century to the present. Demonstrating how contemporary Hong
Kong English has its historical roots in Chinese pidgin English, the book
considers the changing status of English in mainland China over time,
particularly recent developments since 1997.
