This monograph comprises eight papers, most of which originated as presentations given at international conferences or guest lectures. These papers deal with the problematic nature of English as a global language, and discuss what makes texts authentic and reliable for linguistic analysis, Scots in Ulster and in Scotland, forms and functions of English in Southeast Asia, the spread of rhyming slang, and varieties of ELT. The volume concludes with an annotated bibliography of the most important publications devoted to varieties of English around the world.

Table of Contents
“Throughout the text, Görlach provides a wealth of supporting material, historic, social, and linguistic, from a wide assortment of English varieties from every continent. In addition, the inclusion of a fairly extensive annotated bibliography covering many of the book's main topics is quite useful.
Görlach's examination of the state of English provides a useful summary of many of the issues that confront researchers in dialectology and variationist studies. It is a very useful text for anyone interested in the history and the development of English beyond a simple analysis of structural change.”
“The virtue of Görlach's work lies in the way he combines his right insights based on diverse areas including language planning, historical linguistics, literature, and sociolinguistics. In addition, Görlach not only argues for careful treatment and compilation of data that can be used for serious comparison and meaningful generalizations but also practises this himself through the book. For this reason, the points he makes are convincing and useful not only to people working on world Englishes but also to people who approach the issue of globalization of English from different perspectives (such as ethnographic or critical perspectives) and sociolinguistics in general.”
