$105.00

Monolingual, monolithic English is an issue of the past. In this collection, by using cinema, poetry, art, and novels we demonstrate that English has become the heteroglossic language of immigration - Englishes of exile. By appropriating its plural form we pay respect to all those who have been improving standard English, thus proving that one may be born in a language as well as give birth to a language or add to it one's own version. The story of the immigrant, refugee, exile, expatriate is everybody's story, and without migration, we could not evolve our human race.
