Dr. Zhichang Xu, Senior lecturer in English as an International Language, has recently edited a research volume together with Dr. Deyuan He and Prof. David Deterding for Springer. It is titled “Researching Chinese English: State of the Art”.
This volume offers a timely collection of original research papers on the various features and issues surrounding Chinese English. The five sections entitled ‘Researching Chinese English Pronunciation’, ‘Researching Chinese English Lexis, Grammar and Pragmatics’, ‘Researching Perceptions, Attitudes and Reactions towards Chinese English’, ‘Researching Cultural Conceptualizations and Identities in Chinese English’, and ‘Chinese Scholarship on Chinese English’, bring together three generations of Chinese and overseas researchers, both established and emerging, who offer lively dialogues on the current research, development and future of Chinese English. The introductory chapter by the editors on the state-of-the-art of researching Chinese English, and a concluding chapter by a leading researcher in World Englishes on the future directions for researching Chinese English make this an essential title for those who wish to gain insights on Chinese English.
