Even More Englishes comprises Manfred Görlach’s more recent papers devoted to general problems of the world language and to individual varieties. The collection starts with principal questions as to what can rightly be regarded as ‘English’, looks at specific features of emigrant Englishes and the value of individual features as evidence for linguistic geography — and for linguistic jokes. The functional range of Scots is traced through its history, and the question is raised whether we are justified to speak of ‘Celtic Englishes’ in Britain and Ireland. Two papers investigate the forms and functions of the world language in two African states, South Africa and Nigeria. A survey of new dictionaries of varieties of English and a discussion of whether pidgin and creole languages need different types of dictionaries are followed by a documentation of the history of the author’s projects in the field of English as a world language. Even More Englishes complements Englishes and More Englishes previously published in the Varieties of English Around the World book series.
