Routledge Introductions to Applied Linguistics is a series of introductory level textbooks covering the core topics in Applied Linguistics, primarily designed for those beginning postgraduate studies, or taking an introductory MA course as well as advanced undergraduates. Titles in the series are also ideal for language professionals returning to academic study. The books take an innovative 'practice to theory' approach, with a 'back-to-front' structure. This leads the reader from real-world problems and issues, through a discussion of intervention and how to engage with these concerns, before finally relating these practical issues to theoretical foundations. Additional features include tasks with commentaries, a glossary of key terms, and an annotated further reading section. In this book Philip Seargeant surveys varieties of English existing within the world today, and the debates and controversies surrounding its present forms, functions and status in diverse world contexts. It examines how English has evolved to become a 'global language' and looks at the political and cultural history that has influenced this evolution. Beginning with a discussion of real-life challenges relating to world Englishes that are faced by language professionals - particularly in the contexts of language education and language planning - the book explores and illustrates the ways in which the actual use and management of English, as well as the beliefs and ideologies associated with it, play an increasingly important role in contemporary globalized society.

The Incorporation of a World Englishes Paradigm...
39,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

World Englishes is a new emerging field. It seeks to teach the public of the importance of variation in the English language. English has become a number of different varieties. These varieties are what WEs scholars refer to as Englishes. The publication of numerous books by leading figures in the field of World Englishes has surely helped in establishing new varieties of English that were once looked at as misusages or bad performances of the English language spoken by the British, the colonizers of many parts of the world. One of the great figures in the field of WEs is the Indian scholar Braj Kachru whom many scholars and researchers consider as the founder of World Englishes. Kachru is best known for his model of the spread of English in the world. "Kachru divides World Englishes into three concentric circles, the inner circle, the outer circle and the expanding circle." (Jenkins, 2009, p. 18) "The "inner circle is made up of those communities in which English has been passed down the generations as a first language [...]

SELECTED JOURNAL ARTICLES ON NIGERIAN ENGLISH U...
79,00 € *

Journal articles are an indispensable source of information for academic research. But unlike books, which continue to be re-printed to meet demand, each edition of a journal is a one-off publication. This means that once the last copy is sold out, subsequent access to the published articles becomes elusive. Although the Internet now enables easier access to back issues of on-line journals, this has not completely solved the problem, as not all journals are readily available on-line. This publication offers the advantage of bringing together in a single volume a series of articles on Nigerian English by the same author, all previously published in different journals, festschrifts and edited books over a 25-year period. Undoubtedly, such a volume offers instant comprehensive access to all of an individual writer's views on a particular subject matter, revealing any change of perspectives as well. These articles lay no claim to comprehensiveness but have the added usefulness of presenting to researchers and students of applied linguistics a large amount of data on Nigerian English, thus making a modest contribution to the corpus base of this variety of the 'new Englishes'.

Chinese Ibsenism
82,25 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book is a study of the relation between theatre art and ideology in the Chinese experimentations with new selfhood as a result of Ibsen's impact. It also explores Ibsenian notions of self, women and gender in China and provides an illuminating study of Chinese theatre as a public sphere in the dissemination of radical ideas. Ibsen is the major source of modern Chinese selfhood which carries notions of personal and social liberation and has exerted great impacts on Chinese revolutions since the beginning of the twentieth century. Ibsen's idea of the self as an individual has led to various experimentations in theatre, film and fiction to project new notions of selfhood, in particular women's selfhood, throughout the history of modern China. Even today, China is experimenting with Ibsen's notions of gender, power, individualism and self. Kwok-kan Tam is Chair Professor of English and Dean of Humanities and Social Science at the Hang Seng University of Hong Kong. He was Head (2012-18) and is currently a member of the International Ibsen Committee, University of Oslo. He is a Foundation Fellow of the Hong Kong Academy of the Humanities. He has held teaching, research and administrative positions in various institutions, including the East-West Center, the Chinese University of Hong Kong and the Open University of Hong Kong. He has published numerous books and articles on Ibsen, Gao Xingjian, modern drama, Chinese film, postcolonial literature, and world Englishes. His recent books include Ibsen, Power and the Self: Postsocialist Experimentations in Stage Performance and Film (2019), The Englishized Subject: Postcolonial Writings in Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaysia (2019), and a co-edited volume Fate and Prognostication in the Chinese Literary Imagination (2019).

Nigerian English

Although the past few decades have witnessed growing interest in varieties of English around the world, no study of the Nigerian variety intended for the international market has yet been published. Making use of well-known paradigms, the book will relate Nigerian English, as a 'Second Language' variety, to other World Englishes. Its chief overall concern, however, is to provide a detailed descriptive account of the variety, seeking to show what is distinctive about it and also, in this perspective, distinguishing between more educated and less educated usage. After giving a sociolinguistic profile of Nigeria, where English today enjoys a more prominent role than ever before, it will examine in turn the phonology, morpho-syntax, and lexico-semantics of Nigerian English, with samples of written texts from the eighteenth century to the present. It will also give a comprehensive summary of academic research carried out in the field over the past fifty years. In this way the book will provide an introduction to the subject for the benefit of scholars and students in universities in many countries, and will serve as a useful companion to other books in De Gruyter Mouton's Dialects of English series.
