This two-part quantity offers a set of 27 linguistic experiences and contributions that make clear the evolution of other Englishes world-wide (varieties, learner Englishes, dialects, creoles) from a wide spectrum of other views, together with either synchronic and diachronic methods. What makes the amount distinctive is that it's the first-ever contribution to the sphere which incorporates a part completely commited in the direction of trying out, discussing and refining Schneider’s (2007) Dynamic version opposed to contemporary realities of English world-wide (Part 1). those realities contain a large choice of case stories starting from areas (socio)linguistically as varied as South Africa, the Phillipines, Cyprus or Germany. half 2 is going past the Dynamic version and gives either empirical and theoretical views at the evolution of global Englishes. In doing so, it offers contributions with a theoretical specialise in the subject in addition to cross-varietal bills; it sheds mild on person Englishes from varied realms and gives new views on “old” kinds.

Traces of this view can be seen in standard works on the Afrikaans speech community, such as Van der Merwe (1963), where the ever-present threats of Verengelsing (‘anglicisation’) and Anglisismes (‘anglicisms’) were set up as the enemy to the volk en taal (‘nation and language’). In the twilight years of the apartheid government, a lively language policy debate erupted in the country among the white population, with the English Academy proposing “Standard British English” as the national language for a new South Africa (Titlestad 1996), while an alliance of Afrikaans organisations, alongside the National 27 28 Bertus van Rooy Party government, went into the process of negotiations with a strong view to maintain the “bilingual” policy of Afrikaans and English as co-official languages (Steyn 1992; Webb 1992).
