English in Australia.
Jernudd, Bjorn H.
This paper provides a review of "English Transported: Essays on Australasian English," edited by W. S. Ramson. The book is a collection of articles on the various types of English spoken mainly in Australia and New Zealand. Articles discuss such varieties as nineteenth and twentieth century Australian English, New Zealand English, Pidgin English in New Guinea, migrant English in Australia, informal English in the Torres Straits, spoken versus written English, and Australian English as used by Asian students. The present reviewer considers each article and concentrates on the sociolinguistic and phonetic aspects in each discussion. (VM)
