Global Linguists

Studies of global Englishes

Whinnom Believed that Chinese Pidgin English is now virtually dead, with only marginal use remaining among a few Chinese speakers in the British colony of Hong Kong
Platt Discovered that in recent years some attention had been given to English in certain political settings with regards to detailed in depth studies, particularly in Malaysia and Singapore
Kachru Characterised the non native Englishes as the legacy of the colonial period and have mainly developed in 'un-English' cultural and linguistic contexts in various parts of the world, wherever the arm of the Western colonisers reached
Canton Found that the British established their first trading post of pidgins in Guangzhou in 1644
Paddock Presumed that the Maritime Provinces of Canada display many of the characteristics of the language of the nautical trade, including slavery
Dillard Reverenced that the maritime, coastal and insular associations of pidgin English, as well as its utility in multilingual situations, have long been recognised
Reinecke Gave an account which stresses rather the on the spot creation of pidgin in a contact situation, with emphasis on the exploration of a Polynesian or Oriental population by Europeans
Siegel & Jourdan Showed that children and adults with no active knowledge on Pijin at the time of their arrival in Honiara acquire a very high degree fluency in the language after only four weeks of active immersion in the urban culture
Sandefur Thought that Kriol is of more than local interest because it is probably the latest creole to be comprehensively described linguistically
Todd Classified pidgins into restricted and extended, proving them to be important in a multilingual area (e.g. Nigerian Pidgin)
Ikilama Conceptualised that Nigeria's multilingual setting has enhanced the use and growth of pidgins such that in some parts of the country it has become a creole
Troy Instituted that as aboriginal people because increasingly involved in the pastoral industry, the use of their pidgin spread ever more widely across the world
