When considering the structure of New Englishes which have evolved
in - multilingual, mostly post-colonial - contexts of Asia (thus,
Asian Englishes), the significant factors to be considered are: 1)
the variety/ies of the English lexifier that entered the local
context; 2) the nature of transmission of English to the local
population; and 3) the local, i.e. substrate, languages of the
community in which the New English emerges. This third factor is
the focus of the five papers in this volume: they investigate the
structure of Asian varieties of English by exploring the
relationship between the typological profile of substrate languages
in the specific linguistic ecology and the grammatical features of
the emerging contact variety of English.The contributions to this
volume were originally published in English World-Wide 30:2 (2009).
