» Standard English & English Varieties
By Claudia Coja | Published 04/21/2011 | Translator Education | Recommendation:
Defined by Trudgill (2004:5) as the dialect which is normally used in printed books and newspapers, in the educational system, in dictionaries and grammar books, Standard English also comes in a number of different forms around the world: English SE slightly differs from American SE, but also from Scottish SE, Irish SE, Caribbean SE or Australian SE (Crystal: 1995:111). Although linguists admit the higher prestige of SE among all English dialects, most of them insist in emphasizing the linguistic equality between the former and the latter. In other words, if a person speaks the English language, that person necessarily speaks some dialect of the English language and the variation between these dialects should be regarded as a matter of difference and not one of deficit ( Adger: 2007:17-20, Wolfram: 2006:1-6).
