|Title:||Co-Articulation and Social Acceptability: Pragmatic Implications for World Englishes||Authors:||Nihalani, P.||Issue Date:||1991||Citation:||Nihalani, P. (1991). Co-Articulation and Social Acceptability: Pragmatic Implications for World Englishes. World Englishes 10 (3) : 287-293. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||The validity of native-like standards as requirements in English is questioned. In particular, reference is made to allophonic variations, which are said to be necessary to maintain phonemic distinctions & social acceptability. It is argued that standards are biased by an exclusive monolingual society viewpoint & that social acceptability is an issue of social identity, not linguistics. Implications for English as a second language curricula in the Outer Circle of World Englishes are discussed.||Source Title:||World Englishes||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/129375||ISSN:||08832919|
