*With CD-ROM Companion* This volume gives a detailed overview of the varieties of English spoken in the Americas and the Caribbean, including regional, social and ethnic dialects (such as Southern US, Canadian or Chicano English) as well as Caribbean creoles from the Bahamas to Suriname. The chapters, written by widely acclaimed specialists, provide concise and comprehensive information on the phonological, morphological and syntactic characteristics of each variety discussed. The articles are followed by exercises and study questions. The exercises are geared towards students and can be used for classroom assignments as well as for self study in preparation for exams. Instructors can use the exercises, sound samples and interactive maps to enhance their classroom presentations and to highlight important language features. The accompanying CD-ROM contains interactive maps and speech samples that supplement the printed articles and offer material and data for further research. The rich detail found in the chapters as well as the valuable tools on the CD-Rom make this survey of English Varieties a mainstay for researchers and teachers.

Review:

"Overall, this volume is a very helpful addition to the canon of world Englishes studies."
Richard W. Hallett in: Lingusit List 23.3263

"No doubt the last word the editors want to hear is a call for ‘more', but that is certainly a future effort greatly to be desired."
Lise Winer in: Journal of Pidgin and Creole Languages 24:2/2009

"It should be in every research library that does not already own the 2004 Handbook. [...] Highly recommended."
J. M. Alexander in: Choise 05/2009
