Malaysian English, Normativity and Workplace Interactions.
Nair-Venugopal, Shanta
World Englishes, v22 n1 p15-29 Feb 2003
Examines the idea that in the context of the globalized workplace, widespread use of English will exert pressure toward global uniformity yet result in the emergence of a large number of local varieties of English and hybrids. Examines such contradictory sociolinguistic tensions between the phenomenon of homogeneity and normativity on one hand and fragmentation and variability on the other. (Author/VWL)
