He is the founder and co-editor of World Englishes, the associate editor of the Oxford Companion to the English Language and contributor to the Cambridge History of the English Language. His research on world Englishes, the Kashmiri language and literature, and theoretical and applied studies on language and society has resulted in more than 25 authored and edited volumes and more than 100 research papers, review articles, and reviews. The first volume of these Collected Works brings together a number of Kachru's key papers from 1976 to 1990, covering Kachru's early work in the development of World Englishes as a concept and his exploration of non-native varieties of English"--

World Englishes and culture wars by Braj B Kachru( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written from a non-Western perspective, this book exposes the inadequacy of oppositions such as native vs. non-native Englishes and English vs. New Englishes. It explains why the label 'World Englishes' captures both what the different Englishes share and how they differ from each other. It also criticizes the kinds of power asymmetries that have evolved between the Inner, Outer, and Expanding Circles of English, while showing the extent to which the Outer Circle has enriched their common language and made it suitable for both its heritage and non-heritage users. The narrative is grounded in a wealth of historical knowledge, especially that of the colonization of the Outer Circle. Readers are invited to compare the spread and differentiation of English with those of Latin, which evolved into the Romance languages. This comparison may leave the reader asking: could English break up into Anglian languages?

A reference grammar of Kashmiri by Braj B Kachru( Book )

5 editions published in 1969 in English and Undetermined and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study was developed for two pedagogical purposes--first, to provide a skeleton grammar of the Kashmiri language which could be used by teachers of Kashmiri to develop teaching materials for both Indian and non-Indian learners of Kashmiri; and second, to provide an introductory reference manual of Kashmiri for students of the language. The analysis presented here is therefore "essentially pedagogically oriented." Major chapters are: (1) Introduction (area, speakers, earlier research, dialects, history, writing systems, literary tradition), pp. 1-48; (2) Phonetics and Phonology, pp. 49-67; (3) Word-Formation, pp. 68-80; (4) Word Classes, pp. 81-220; (5) The Noun Phrase, pp. 221-31; (6) The Verb Phrase, pp. 232-42; (7) The Adverbial Phrase, pp. 243-46; and (8) Sentence Types, pp. 247-74. Appended are a partial list of compound verbs, Kashmiri-English and English-Kashmiri glossaries, a bibliography, and an index to the volume. Most of the Kashmiri material is written in romanized phonemic script and the grammatical terminology used is that of modern descriptive linguistics.
