Standards and Emerging Linguistic Realities in the Malaysian Workplace.
Gill, Saran Kaur
World Englishes, v18 n2 p215-31 Jul 1999
Investigates (1) how Malaysian linguists perceive and categorize sub-varieties of Malaysian English, as spoken by select speakers, along the lectal continuum; and (2) whether "gatekeepers" regard the same select speakers acceptable for delivering business presentations to different audiences. Discussion sheds light on what is and is not acceptable in relation to standards and emerging linguistic realities of the workplace. (Author/VWL)
