CAIRO BOOKS's Description
From Scotland to Singapore, Canada to the Channel Islands, Namibia to New
Zealand and beyond, International English takes you on a fascinating journey
through the varieties of Standard English spoken around the world. Comparisons
across the varieties provide a comprehensive guide to differences in phonetics,
phonology, grammar and vocabulary, providing a useful resource for teachers of
English as a foreign language and linguistics students alike. In this fifth
edition the authors have added a new discussion of what Standard English really
is, as well as an outline of typologies of varieties of English including ELF
'English as a lingua franca'. This new material will be of particular interest
to teachers and advanced learners of English as a foreign or second language as
well as students of sociolinguistics, English language and language variation.
MP3 files, ideal for use in class, at home or on the move, are free to download
from our website, www.hodderplus.com/linguistics, and feature audio examples
from throughout the text.
The new material, coupled with a thorough updating of the remaining text and
references, ensures that International English will remain a favorite and
indispensable resource for teachers and students for many years to come.
