Abstract [en]

Over the last thirty years, the term “World Englishes” has been widely used to refer to the localized forms of English found throughout the world, particularly with reference in the Caribbean, West and East Africa, and many parts of Asia. From the early 1980s onwards, in various branches of linguistics, research, and publications on World Englishes have contributed to a paradigm shift in English studies.
