This book explores through fresh detail and approaches unanticipated, heterogeneous dispersions of the English language world-wide. Through data collection, comparative analysis, and typological study, the book's chapters capture patterns that now affect established dialects and shape those recently emerging. From classroom to mature design, the volume sparks linguistic undertakings in the increasing complexities of communication. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
