|Description:||This classic PBS program features new varieties of English that have transcended British and American influence. The program focuses on some of the most successful examples of “New English,” including Jamaican creole, the English of India, and the pidgin of Melanesia, brought to Papua New Guinea by maritime trade. The program concludes with the possibility that the world’s first global language will endure alongside its unrecognizable descendants.|
