My Language, Your Culture: Whose Communicative Competence?
Nelson, Cecil L.
World Englishes: Journal of English as an International and Intranational Language, v4 n2 p243-50 Sum 1985
Examines communicative competence in transplanted varieties of English used in various non-Western sociocultural contexts in the world. The examples presented show that native speakers' judgements of the deviations in such Englishes are based on both attitudinal factors and on genuine expectations in the context of verbal interaction.
