    Language use, proficiency and attitudes in Hong Kong2015Report (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study builds on the detailed empirical research of the three investigators, who have been collaborating on researching the Hong Kong linguistic situation since the early 1980s. This research utilises social survey methodology to investigate which languages are used within the community. In more technical terms, this has involved carrying out ‘sociolinguistic surveys’ (surveys of languages in society) to investigate which languages are learnt, and which are used, by whom to whom, across a range of settings (or ‘domains’) in Hong Kong society. Previously, three such surveys have been conducted, in 1983, 1993, and 2003. The 1983 sociolinguistic survey used faceto-face interviews with a total of 1240 respondents (Bolton and Luke 1999). This was followed, in 1993 and 2003, by two telephone surveys conducted by the Social Sciences Research Centre of The University of Hong Kong, where a total of 886 respondents were interviewed in the 1993 survey, and 1060 in the 2003 (Bacon-Shone and Bolton 1998, 2008). One broad aim of all three surveys was to describe patterns of language acquisition, language use, and attitudes to language policies in Hong Kong. This study carried out a sociolinguistic survey of Hong Kong in 2014 together with detailed reanalysis of the 2011 census data across the 18 districts and 412 constituency areas, which yields useful and applicable results relating to ethnic/linguistic minorities, multilingualism, multiculturalism, and language planning, of direct interest to public policy in Hong Kong. It also calibrates for the first time, using expert assessment, selfreported claims of proficiency in oral English and Putonghua and written English and simplified Chinese.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper sets out to discuss creativity and world Englishes from a range of perspectives. It begins with a discussion of the changing face of English studies over recent decades, and then proceeds to discuss definitions of 'creativity' and 'bilingual creativity'. In the later sections of the paper, there is discussion of postcolonial literature and world fiction in English, with particular reference to the work of Timothy Mo. Finally, the implications of this discussion for contemporary English studies in Hong Kong are also considered.

    English across Asia: Current trends in research and publications2007In: 13th Annual Conference of the International Association for World Englishes (IAWE), University of Regensburg, October 4-6, 2007, 2007Conference paper (Refereed)
    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.

    Language policy and planning in Hong Kong: colonial and post-colonial perspectives2011In: Applied Linguistics Review, ISSN 1868-6311, Vol. 2, p. 51-73Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Hong Kong ceased to be a colony of Britain on June 30th, 1997, thus entering anew stage of its development and evolution as a uniquely-constituted city state and urban metropolis. The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of China (HKSAR) inherited a linguistic ecology that owed much to its previous existence as a British colony, where the Chinese language had had no de jure status until 1974. From 1995, the stated policy of government has been to promote a “biliterate” (Chinese and English) and “trilingual” (Cantonese, Putonghua and English) society, and various measures have also been taken to promote the use of Chinese as a medium of instruction in schools. Immediately after the change in sovereignty, Putonghua became a compulsory school subject for the first time. This paper will examine the issue of language planning and policies partly froman historical perspective, but also through a consideration of currentpolicies and practices across a range of domains, including government, law and education. One major conclusion that emerges from this discussion is that, froma language policy perspective, the relationship between Chinese and Englishin the Hong Kong context is potentially far less contentious than that betweenCantonese and Putonghua.

    Mediatized gossip: From printer pamphlets to the electronic present2013In: Proceedings of the 2nd Annual International Conference on Journalism and Mass Communications (JMComm 2013) / [ed] Swanson, Gary, The Global Science & Technology Forum (GSTF) , 2013, p. 137-139Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper traces the history of gossip in the media from the late seventeenth century to the present, which in its first stages found expression early forms of print journalism. The impetus for a wider readership in for newspapers came from US journalism in the mid to late 19th century. Towards the end of that century, William Randolph Hearst acquired the New York Journal (1895) and began to promote sensational journalism aimed at the widest possible audience. By this time, trends in American journalism were also being felt in the British press, most noticeably with the publication of such Sunday newspapers as The News of the World, which was first published in 1843, and such weeklies as George Newnes' Titbits, from 1881. Throughout the twentieth century gossip was increasingly purveyed through such other media as radio and television, while today various forms of gossip are used with powerful effect and diverse purposes through the Internet, smartphones, social media and a range of digital platforms.
