Over the years since first publication in 1982, International English has established its place as the only text which gives a good overview of the linguistics characteristics of varieties of English around the world. In order to keep up with research that has been conducted over the past 6 years, authors Professor Peter Trudgill and Jean Hannah have completely reworked and rewritten their chapter on the Caribbean which now reflects the new research they have conducted in this area. The book now also includes a new chapter 7 on 'Lesser-known Englishes' covering those varieties spoken in the Channel Islands, Bermuda and The Bahamas as well as African countries such as Botswana and Namibia, to name but a few. This new material, coupled with a thorough updating of the remaining text and references ensures that International English will remain a favourite and indispensable resource for teachers and students for many years to come.

International English provides a concise and easily accessible guide to the standard varieties of English around the world, and is undoubtedly an invaluable resource for teachers and students alike.
Jennifer Smith, Department of Language and Linguistics
The style throughout is accessible to the general reader with an interest in the English Language. This edition is one which students and lecturers should have on their shelf.

My own personal use of this handbook over the last fifteen years or so has convinced me that Trudgill and Hannah have more than fulfilled their modest goal of providing 'at least a partial solution to the problem of recognising and coping with differences among the standard varieties of English by covering differences at the levels of phonetics, phonology, grammar and vocabulary.'
Peter Trudgill is Honorary Professor of Sociolinguistics at the University of East Anglia, UK
