About the Author:

Gunnel Melchers, Department of English, Stockholm University, Sweden

Philip Shaw, Department of English, Stockholm University, Sweden

Review:

'While it has retained its structure, its accessibility, and user-friendly layout, the second edition with its many additions and emendations takes Melchers & Shaw again to the premier league of introductions to World Englishes.

Especially praiseworthy are its expansive treatment of lingua-franca English, the growing importance of computer-mediated communication for the globalization of English, and the role of a (potential) Euro-English. The added glossary and the extra sound files (now available on the accompanying website) are now additional assets'.

Professor Dr Günther Lampert, Department of English and Linguistics, Johannes Gutenberg-Universität, Germany

'Melchers and Shaw have produced an outstanding piece of work in World Englishes and one which is fully deserving of its place as an indispensable addition to the study of English as a national and international language. It is a well-written, engaging, informative and detailed account of English both at home and abroad and belongs on the bookshelf of every student of linguistics. I think that the detailed glossary is brilliant and the addition of "talking points" and exercises makes it an ideal introductory text to the field.'
Dr Robert Lawson, School of English, Birmingham City University, UK
