Title: Legacies of Colonial English
Subtitle: Studies in Transported Dialects
Edited By: Raymond Hickey
URL: http://www.cambridge.org/us/catalogue/catalogue.asp?isbn=0521830206
Series Title: Studies in English Language
Description:

This collection brings together internationally-renowned scholars to
discuss the role of British dialects in the genesis and subsequent history
of postcolonial Englishes. As a result of colonization, many varieties of
English now exist around the world. Considering the input of Scottish,
English and Irish dialects, they examine a wide range of
Englishes--including those in North and South America, South Africa, Asia,
Australia, and New Zealand. They also explain why many overseas Englishes
still reflect non-standard British usage from the distant past.
