Global Mother Tongue by Howard Richler

Book Description

Celebrating a language that is spoken by 1.6 billion people, this entertaining analysis explores the international growth of English and gives an in-depth examination of its history. Explaining the differences and similarities between the eight English-languages--African, American, Australian/New Zealand, British, Canadian, Caribbean, East Asian, and South Asian--this survey reflects on both dialect and usage. With humor and fascinating facts, the book illustrates the changes implemented by English and evaluates the impact of other languages on English, asserting that it is truly the first global tongue.
