Über den Autor

Edgar W. Schneider is Full Professor and Chair of English Linguistics in the Department of English and American Studies, and Dean of the Faculty for Linguistics, Literature and Cultural Studies at the University of Regensburg, Germany.


'The best book for discovering the rich variety in English and its amazing spread, popularity, and uses around the world.' John Algeo, University of Georgia 'This is a virtuoso's overview of the sociolinguistics of English around the world, whilst at the same time a warm, inviting, and detailed introduction to this field for the uninitiated.' Rajend Mesthrie, University of Cape Town 'English Around the World is a masterfully executed survey of the spread of English from the British Isles to postcolonial countries ... In addition to being written in a clear and accessible style, the book provides the readers with all necessary tools, including maps, timelines, exercises, audio recordings, suggestions for further readings, glossaries of linguistic terms and phonetic symbols, lists of key notions discussed in chapters, and questions to guide further investigations of varieties of English. Thanks to these features, [the book] is a highly versatile resource for teachers and students. It may be used as a major reading in a course such as World Englishes. Alternatively, individual chapters may be easily integrated in a variety of courses, from historical linguistics and creole studies to language pedagogy.' The Linguist List 'The series framework guarantees its success as a textbook. The colloquial style and simulation of argumentation processes might be seen as an aid to invite students to work in the field. Format and style apart, the selection and sequencing of topics is convincing.' Gerhard Leitner, Anglistik: International Journal of English Studies
