The Range and Depth of English-Knowing Bilinguals in Singapore.
Pakir, Anne
World Englishes, v10 n2 p167-79 Sum 1991
The discourse of Singaporean "English-knowing bilinguals" is examined using a new model, "expanding triangles," which involves an increasing English-speaking base population and two distinctive English speech clines. It is suggested that the expanding triangles concept allows better comprehension of the otherwise haphazard and infinite array of English usage. (36 References) (JL)
