Read from September 29 to October 09, 2011

The book comprises essays about Singapore English. It is almost akin to my English textbooks (undergraduate level).

It is, however, interesting and insightful, as I learned more about the development of English in Singapore. Moreover, unlike my textbooks, I do not need to memorize anything! =D

There are many technical terms in the book. I don't remember the terms being simplified or explained, as I presumed that this book is catered to readers who have good understanding of language.

Therefore, it's recommended only for English majors, linguists or English language educators. General readers might find it hard to comprehend, unless they have a dictionary beside them.
