This volume brings together a range of studies on various aspects of English and its use in Southern Africa. Experts in their field have written chapters on topics including the history and development of English in South Africa, the characteristics of particular pan-ethnic varieties of English which have evolved in South Africa (including black, Indian and colored varieties) as well as the unique features of the English of South Africa&#8217;s southern neighbours: Swaziland, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Malawi. Other contributions focus on English in relation to issues such as standardisation, lexicography, education, language planning, language attitudes and interaction patterns.<br />The book will be of primary interest to students of linguistics and language, but should also be relevant to educationists, sociologists and historians.

Subjects: Germanic linguistics; English linguistics; Sociolinguistics and Dialectology
