World Englishes is a vibrant research field that has attracted scholars from many different linguistic subdisciplines. Emphasizing the common ground of all research on World Englishes, the 22 articles in this collected volume, selected from more than a hundred papers presented at the 2007 conference of the International Association for World Englishes in Regensburg, cover a broad range of topics which together reflect the state of the art of research in this field. The volume focuses on regions as diverse as Africa, the Caribbean, the Antipodes and Asia, but also promotes a globally comparative perspective by analyzing selected characteristics of the English language across a wide range of varieties. Methodologically, a number of different approaches are applied, including corpus linguistic studies, socio-phonetics as well as historical discourse analysis. Due to its wide scope, the book is of interest not only to World Englishes scholars but also to sociolinguists as well as applied, contact or corpus linguists.

Table of Contents
WEPPP is noteworthy not only for its outstanding papers, but also for the fact that it contains papers from the first IAWE conference held in Europe, the birthplace of “Euro- English”. The high quality of the many corpus-based papers in the volume makes it a very valuable addition to the literature on the phenomenon of English world-wide...With both regionally focused contributions as well as general, theoretically-oriented papers based on various kinds of data, especially from the ICE project, WEPPP makes an excellent textbook of supplementary readings for a course in world Englishes or for that matter in the broader field of sociolinguistics.”
