Series Title: Varieties of English Around the World G42
Description:

This volume provides a first systematic, comprehensive account of English in
Southeast Asia (SEA) based on current research by leading scholars in the
field. The volume first provides a systematic account of the linguistic features
across all sub-varieties found within each country. It also has a section
dedicated to the historical context and language planning policies to provide a
background to understanding the development of the linguistic features covered
in Part I and, finally, the vibrancy of the sociolinguistic and pragmatic realities
that govern actual language in use in a wide variety of domains such as the law,
education, popular culture, electronic media and actual pragmatic encounters
are also given due coverage. This volume also includes an extensive
bibliography of works on English in SEA, thus providing a useful and valuable
resource for language researchers, linguists, classroom educators, policy
makers and anyone interested in the topic of English in SEA or World Englishes
as a whole.
