Indian and British English: A Handbook of Usage and Pronunciation
The development of 'world Englishes' is a significant factor in the spread of English as a first or second language worldwide. Indian speakers (and writers) of English will recognize the many, often quite subtle, ways in which Indian English differs from British Standard English (BSE) usage. This book is essential for all those who are uncertain of the 'correctness' of their spoken and written English. Book jacket.
