Book Information

   

Title: English Around the World
Subtitle: An Introduction
Written By: Edgar W. W. Schneider
Description:

The global spread of English has had widespread linguistic, social and cultural
implications, affecting the lives of millions of people around the world. This
textbook provides a lively and accessible introduction to world Englishes,
describing varieties used in places as broad-ranging as America, Jamaica,
Australia, Africa and Asia, and setting them within their historical and social
contexts. Students are guided through the material with chapter previews and
summaries, maps, timelines, lists of key terms, discussion questions and
exercises, and a comprehensive glossary, helping them to understand, analyse
and compare different varieties of English, and apply descriptive terminology.
The book is accompanied by a useful web site, containing textual and audio
examples of the varieties introduced in the text, and links to related sources of
interest. Providing essential knowledge and skills for those embarking on the
study of world Englishes, this is set to become the leading introduction to the
subject.
