Pursuant to an older discussion on the topic of pluricentric languages (, I can now add two newly published titles for your consideration:

Dollinger, Stefan. 2019. The Pluricentricity Debate: On Austrian German and Other Germanic Standard Varieties. New York: Routledge.

Dollinger, Stefan. 2019. Creating Canadian English: the Professor, the Mountaineer, and a National Variety of English. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press.

I hope these titles will help advance the exchange, perhaps for their combination of comparative and case-study perspectives.
