Summary
The two volumes of Englishes around the World present high-quality original research papers written in honour of Manfred Görlach, founder and editor of the journal English World-Wide and the book series Varieties of English Around the World. The papers thematically focus on the field that Manfred Görlach has helped to build and shape. Volume 1 contains articles on general topics and studies of what might be termed "Old" Englishes, varieties of English that have been rooted in their respective regions for a long time and have been traditional focal points of scholarly study
