Is there a Standard English?

Image of World Englishes: Implications for International Communication and English Language Teaching (Applied Linguistics Non Series)
Author: Andy Kirkpatrick
Publisher: Cambridge University Press (2007)
Binding: Paperback, 267 pages

Is there a standard English? This book argues no - nor should there be. The enclosed CD showcases a wide diversity of voices and accents tell stories in .... English? Or is it Englishes? Communication breaks down.
Yet this book also documents how international English speakers can do work together in imperfect English!
