When considering the structure of New Englishes which have evolved in -multilingual, mostly post-colonial - contexts of Asia (thus, Asian Englishes), thesignificant factors to be considered are: 1) the variety/ies of the English lexifierthat entered the local context; 2) the nature of transmission of English to thelocal population; and 3) the local, i.e. substrate, languages of the community inwhich the New English emerges. This third factor is the focus of the five papersin this volume: they investigate the structure of Asian varieties of English byexploring the relationship between the typological profile of substrate languagesin the specific linguistic ecology and the grammatical features of the emergingcontact variety of English.The contributions to this volume were originallypublished in "English World-Wide" 30:2 (2009).
