World Englishes and Creole Languages Today
Vol. II: The Bobdian Thinking and Beyond
Aloysius Ngefac, Hans-Georg Wolf & Thomas Hoffmann (eds.)
University of Yaounde I, University of Potsdam, KU Eichstätt-Ingolstadt | Hunan Normal University
This book demonstrates, in the context of the Bobdian thinking and beyond, that world Englishes and creole languages today display interesting sociolinguistic, typological and pedagogic trends and tendencies. These trends and tendencies have been investigated and reported by Rajend Mesthrie & Yolandi Ribbens-Klein, Thorsten Brato, Hans-Georg Wolf & Arne Peters, Leslie Barratt, Akinmade Timothy Akande, Christian Mair & Bridget Fonkeu, John Victor Singler, Maria Mazzoli, Ogechi Florence Agbo & Ingo Plag, Ian Hancock, Aloysius Ngefac, Blasius Achiri-Taboh and Jemima Akosua Anderson. The book is unique and differs from previous works in many ways. First and foremost, it is one of the rare works that overtly bring world Englishes and creole languages together in the same volume, providing an opportunity for current trends to be investigated in the context of the groundbreaking work that Augustin Simo Bobda has already carried out in these two subfields of linguistics. Second, some paradigms in world Englishes and creole languages have been tested in different parts of the world with reference to current data and the results are reported in this book. Third, the book serves as a forum for reflections beyond the Bobdian thinking.
