About the Author:

Patrick J. Cummings has been teaching both English and science in Hong Kong for more than a decade. His current research interest is assessment vocabulary for second language learners of English.

Review:

This guide to Hong Kong's special brand of English is full of fascinating detail, presented in a highly accessible manner. There is something here for every kind of reader, from the visitor to Hong Kong seeking insight into typical Hong Kong forms of life, to the scholar investigating linguistic and cultural interaction in colonial and postcolonial societies. An indispensable resource for the understanding of Hong Kong's complex linguistic heritage. (Chris Hutton, The University of Hong Kong)
