English across Asia: Current trends in research and publications

Abstract [en]

Throughout the recent  decades, the acquisition and use of English has spread across the Asian region,  not only in such former Anglophone colonies as Hong Kong, India, Malaysia, Singapore and  the Philippines,  but also throughout such societies as China and Japan. This  paper attempts to review recent research on Asian Englishes with reference to the  diversity of approaches in this field, which currently range from the socio-political  to the literary and linguistic. One broad question in this context – from a  macro-sociolinguistic perspective – is the impact of English on language  planning and policies in Asian societies, not least in education. At quite  another level, a second broad issue – from a linguistic perspective – is the  extent to which research on Asian Englishes can contribute to the study of linguistic  variation, and the description and analysis of varieties of English worldwide.
