Creative Destruction: Singapore's Speak Good English.
Rubdy, Rani
World Englishes, v20 n3 p341-55 Nov 2001
Attempts to show that the move to stem the popularity of Singlish (Singapore English) is another manifestation of the notion of creative destruction, currently being proposed as a strategy to improve partial destruction of existing economic ideas and structures that rapidly obsolesce with the emergence of new ones. Argues that attempts to replace Singlish with Standard English can be seen as a triumph of the restless, hegemonic forces of globalization. (Author/VWL)
