□ 50 [Early Modern England ]
Learning Languages in Early Modern England
/ Gallagher, John. 274 p. Oxford UP, 2019.
English was practically unknown outside of England, which meant that the English who wanted to travel and trade with the wider world in this period had to become language-learners. Using a wide range of printed and manuscript sources, from multilingual conversation manuals to travellers' diaries and letters where languages mix and mingle, Learning Languages explores how early modern English-speakers learned and used foreign languages, and asks what it meant to be competent in another language in the past.

Routledge Handbook of Japanese Sociolinguistics
/ Heinrich, Patrick (ed) 464 p. Routledge, 2019:6.
While it was once believed that Japan was a linguistically homogenous country, research over the past two decades has shown Japan to be a multilingual and sociolinguistically diversifying country. Building on this approach, the contributors to this handbook take this further, combining Japanese and western approaches alike and producing research which is relevant to twenty-first century societies.

The book will also explain the similarities and differences that exist between WE and English as a Lingua Franca (ELF) and English as an International Language (EIL).
□ 54 -Topicalization in Asian Englishes: Forms, Functions, and Frequencies of a Fronting Construction / Leuckert, Sven
(Routledge Studies in World Englishes)
221 p. Routledge, 2019.
This monograph is the first comprehensive study of topicalization in Asian second-language varieties of English and provides an in-depth analysis of the forms, functions, and frequencies of topicalization in four Asian Englishes.
