English transported : essays on Australasian English

CollectionsANU Press (1965- Present)
Title: English transported : essays on Australasian English
Author(s): Ramson, W. S.
Date published: 1970
Publisher: Canberra, ACT : Australian National University Press
Description: 
Australasian English - that used in Australia, New Zealand, and Papua-New Guinea - has never before been reported upon with the same clarity and depth as in this series of articles edited by Dr Ramson. Up-to-date findings in the study of vocabulary are supplemented by chapters on the interaction of English with other languages, on the speech of Australian Aborigines, migrants and Asian students, and on New Guinea Pidgin. This book will not only stimulate research activity in the subject and overcome the present paucity of teaching material - it will also appeal to the general reader wishing to know more about these distinctive variations of the English language.
