This is the first book solely dedicated to the systematic description of the linguistic and discourse features of Malaysian English. The descriptions are based on research done by the author and data from the Corpus of Spoken Malaysian English. The book also discusses current trends in the use of Malaysian English. Because of its scope and research-based content, the book provides valuable insights on the sub-varieties subsumed under the umbrella term 'Malaysian English'. It also examines where Malaysian English is situated within the milieu of regional and global Englishes. A survey of previous work on Malaysian English and an annotated bibliography provides a valuable 'one-stop' resource for students and researchers. The book can be used as a key or supplementary reference for both undergraduate and postgraduate courses on World Englishes or Varieties of English.
