This paper positions the volume’s findings on English in Namibia in the wider context of World Englishes.

This chapter looks at linguistic diversity as represented in two Namibian novels, discussing aspects of authenticity, identity formation, style-shifting, and meta-language, but also the representation of multilingualism in literary texts. By combining linguistic analysis with literary study, the… read more
Variational pragmatics has only recently been combined with non-native World Englishes research, by examining the pragmatics of Namibian English (NamE). However, this research has concentrated on the comparison of pragmatic phenomena in NamE to those in some L1-varieties, exclusively based on the… read more
Schröder, Anne, Frederic Zähres and Alexander Kautzsch 2021 Chapter 6. The phonetics of Namibian English: Investigating vowels as local features in a global contextThe Dynamics of English in Namibia: Perspectives on an emerging variety, Schröder, Anne (ed.), pp. 111–134 | Chapter

In the framework of variational pragmatics, the focus so far has been on L1-varieties of English, and the present paper introduces this area of research into the wider field of World Englishes. It presents first results from a larger questionnaire study on a number of pragmatic variables in… read more
Busse, Ulrich and Anne Schröder 2009 Fowler’s Modern English Usage at the interface of lexis and grammarExploring the Lexis–Grammar Interface, Römer-Barron, Ute and Rainer Schulze (eds.), pp. 69–87 | Article
The relationship between lexicon and syntax poses a problem to theoretical linguistics but also to the normal language user as the theoretical division is reflected in a division of labour between dictionaries on the one hand and grammars on the other; and it seems as if only usage guides deal with… read more
