Summary: ''Current debates about the teaching of English in the school curriculum and more general concerns about declining standards of English are placed in a historical, social and international context. Standard English traces the notion of 'Standard English' from its roots in the practices of late seventeenth-century grammarians, through succeeding centuries to the present day; explores the definitions of 'Standard English', with particular attention paid to distinctions between spoken a morend written English; demonstrates that 'Standard English' is viewed very differently in the US and reveals how it is used as a marker for different forms of social discrimination, and draws on similar issues such as the English Only Movement and Ebonics; and considers the relevance of 'Standard English' in the world context.'' ''Standard English: The widening debate is an accessible, seminal work which clarifies an increasingly confused topic. It is therefore essential reading for students of English, and English in Education, and will also appeal to anyone with an active interest in the English language.''--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
