Over the years since first publication in 1982, International Englishhas established its place as the only text which gives a good overview of the linguistics characteristics of varieties of English around the world. In order to keep up with research that has been conducted over the past 6 years, authors Professor Peter Trudgill and Jean Hannah have completely reworked and rewritten their chapter on the Caribbean which now reflects the new research they have conducted in this area. The book now also includes a new chapter 7 on 'Lesser-known Englishes' covering those varieties spoken in the Channel Islands, Bermuda and The Bahamas as well as African countries such as Botswana and Namibia, to name but a few. This new material, coupled with a thorough updating of the remaining text and references ensures that International Englishwill remain a favourite and indispensable resource for teachers and students for many years to come.
