About this book

The chapters in this volume allow readers to develop a broad understanding of the issues around language variation and to recognise pedagogical implications of this work in multilingual contexts. The authors explore how variations in Englishes around the world relate to issues in English language teaching and learning. The English language has always existed alongside other languages. However, the last 200 years have shown a dramatic increase in the range, extent and context of contact between English and other languages. As a result of this contact, we find marked variations in Englishes around the world. The first part includes chapters of importance in studying English language variation in the context of education. The second part builds on an understanding of variation and identifies pedagogical possibilities that respect language variation and yet empower English language learners in diverse contexts.

Reviews

"This is a well-conceived, highly readable and timely collection. The book tackles questions that are increasingly emerging as central to the future of English language teaching: namely, how ‘Englishes’ are to be conceptualised, their variations mapped and their implications for language teaching and learning understood. Keeping these questions in play throughout, the collection draws on a diversity of international contexts, case studies and relevant methodologies. The chapters include studies in the sociolinguistics of language variation, bringing out the social and ethical implications of this variation for educators, and studies that highlight the practical applications that ensue for the teaching and learning of Englishes. For the reader this twin focus and progression is of great value in bringing out the complexity of variation through a diversity of nuanced studies while at the same time tying these to the practical implications for teachers and learners." (Jonathan Crichton, University of South Australia, Australia)
