South Asian English is the English of South Asia.

Contents

English was introduced to South Asia in the early 17th century and reinforced by the long rule of the British Empire.

Today it is spoken as a second language by about 33 million people, 3% of the total population.

Although it is fairly homogeneous across the region, sharing "linguistic features and tendencies at virtually all linguistic levels", there are also differences based on various factors.

South Asian English is sometimes called "Indian English", as British India included most of the region, but today, the varieties of English are usually divided according to the modern states:

  • Bangladeshi English
  • Indian English
  • Nepali English
  • Pakistani English
  • Sri Lankan English
  • Klf 2016 south asian english fiction 7 2 2016
