Schröder, Anne, Frederic Zähres and Alexander Kautzsch 2020 Ethnic variation in the phonology of Namibian English: A first approach to Baster English*English World-Wide 41:2, pp. 193–224
Studies on the pronunciation of Namibian English (NamE) have shown strong evidence for ethnically conditioned variation within the NamE vowel system.

Even if linguistic research (e.g. Berns 1988; Hilgendorf 2005) has claimed that the status of English in Germany might be changing from foreign language (EFL) to second language (ESL) status, or, for that matter, from an Expanding Circle to an Outer Circle English (e.g. Kachru 1985), empirical… read more | Article
