Tolerance Towards Malaysian English As a New Variety of English
Maniam, Rukumani Devi (1998) Tolerance Towards Malaysian English As a New Variety of English. Masters project report, Universiti Putra Malaysia.
New Englishes have emerged all over the world and are seen as developing from what can be called the established native speaker variety. Malaysian English is a non-native variety distinct from the Standard British English. The consolidation of this variety in its present form or its continuity evolving into a form even further from its roots, depends on the attitudes of its speech community. Malaysian English has emerged in a systematic and consistent manner both in spoken and written forms. The results of the survey indicate that there is tolerance for Malaysian English both in the spoken and written mode.
