Post-Imperial English (Trends in Linguistics)
by:Fishman, Joshua A.
The volume deals with three interlocking questions: is English 'still' spreading in the non-English native-speaking world? If so, is this continued spread in any way directly orchestrated by, fostered by, or exploitatively beneficial to the English native-speaking world? Are there forces or processes which transcend the English mother-tongue world itself...
The volume deals with three interlocking questions: is English 'still' spreading in the non-English native-speaking world? If so, is this continued spread in any way directly orchestrated by, fostered by, or exploitatively beneficial to the English native-speaking world? Are there forces or processes which transcend the English mother-tongue world itself and which may also be contributing noticeably to the continued spread and entrenchment of English in non-English mother-tongue countries? The book presents a wealth of case studies each of which has been written by academics who were residents and/or have long been specialists in the status of English in the setting which they have been asked to describe and analyze. A detailed summary and interpretation confronts the individual findings with each other on the one hand, and with the recently proposed linguistic imperialism hypothesis on the other.
