"The Oxford Guide to World English takes up where its 'mother book', The Oxford Companion to the English Language, left off. Organized by continent, there are chapters on Europe, the Americas, Africa, Asia, and Australasia, Oceania, and Antarctica. Tom McArthur covers the world's many varieties of English in an interconnected way and notes the ties that bind varieties and regions that are geographically far apart, as with: West African English and African American English; Scots, Ulster Scots, the Scotch-Irish migrations to Appalachia in the US, and country and western music; and aspects of Australian, New Zealand, South African, and Falklands English as southern-hemisphere varieties. The end result is a book that, while invaluable to the specialist, is accessible and appealing to the non-specialist, and covers a vast spread of 'Englishes' from Brummie, Cockney, Estuary, and RP in the UK to New York and New Orleans speech in the US and such other varieties as Indian English, Maori English, and West African Pidgin." "A concluding chapter studies: the nature and power of large languages; such issues as gender and political correctness; the role, status, and nature of broken and fractured English; the worldwide English language teaching industry; and the issue of standardness, considered both locally and globally."--BOOK JACKET.… (mer)

Tom McArthur surveys the English language in a snapshot of how it is used and how it varies continent by continent throughout the world, concluding with reflections on what it means to say English is a world language.

Fascinating, but more of a reference work to dip into rather than read straight through. ( )

A thorough-going place-by-place guide to the way in which English is used,(mostly as a primary language, but also as a second language) around the world. It starts by considering, separately, the many regional varieties of the language in the British Isles, and then moves on to North America, the Caribbean, Africa, Asia and Australasia. It covers pronunciation, vocabulary, and usage, and also has sections on English vs. American English, and on World English. Informative and well written. ( )
