The Evolution of Singlish: Beyond Phase 5?
This paper focuses on the development of Singlish and shows that the study of Singlish provides us with useful information about how the development of (varieties of) English is related to issues of language, identity and culture in a rapidly globalizing world. As such, it raises the important question of how the issue of global mobility (of people as well as cultural – including linguistic – products) can be linked to Schneider’s Dynamic Model. The basic assumptions of the Dynamic Model, the paper argues, will need to be reconsidered if it is to keep pace with the sociolinguistic implications of globalization.
