South African Englishes: A contemporary bibliography

Werner Botha, Bertus van Rooy, Susan Coetzee-van Rooy

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The bibliography presented here is a list of contemporary research publications that provide the details of books, research articles, as well as other research outputs that were published between 1994 and 2020. The main aim of this bibliography is to provide scholars interested in researching South African Englishes with sources of major works published internationally as well as in core journals from South Africa. Despite the problems concerning representativeness of research bibliographies in general, we hope that this list of references will complement existing sources in this field. We also hope that this bibliography will serve as a useful guide for those researchers and graduate students interested in contemporary issues in the study of South African Englishes.
