english or English? Attitudes, Local Varieties, and English Language Teaching.
Norrish, John
TESL-EJ, v3 n1 Nov 1997
Discusses issues surrounding the phenomena of local or "Nativized" varieties of English, developments that take place characteristically in ex-colonial territories where forms of ex-colonial language evolved and developed in own right independently of metropolitan sources. Discusses acceptability of different varieties, code switching, and the decision of the teacher about which variety to use in the classroom. Calls for policy to support teacher's practices in classrooms. (Author/JL)
