Chinese Pragmatic Norms and "China English."
Kirkpatrick, Andy; Zhichang, Xu
World Englishes, v21 n2 p269-79 Jul 2002
Considers a selection of discourse and rhetorical norms of Modern Standard Chinese and contrasts them with a comparable selection of discourse and rhetorical norms of an "inner circle" variety of English. Because transfer of discourse and rhetorical norms from a first to a second language commonly occurs, predicts that a Chinese variety of English is characterized by a number of discourse and rhetorical norms derived from Chinese.
