English World-Wide | A Journal of Varieties of English

English World-Wide has established itself as the leading and most comprehensive journal dealing with varieties of English. The focus is on scholarly discussions of new findings in the dialectology and sociolinguistics of the English-speaking communities (native and second-language speakers), but general problems of variationist, general and historical sociolinguistics, pidgin and creole linguistics, language planning, multilingualism and modern historical sociolinguistics are included if they have a direct bearing on modern varieties of English. Although issues relating to applied linguistics and language teaching are not within its scope, English World-Wide provides important background information for all those involved in teaching English throughout the world.


English World-Wide publishes its articles Online First.
