The fifteen chapters in the book are the papers from a conference held at the Australian National University 17-29 October 1999. The conference was hosted by the Australian National Dictionary Centre, Oxford University Press, and the Humanities Research centre. It brought together leading lexicographers from around the world, including the Chief Editor (John Simpson) and Deputy Editor (Penny Silva) of the Oxford English Dictionary. A dominant theme of the papers is the future of regional Englishes (Australian English, Indian English, Canadian English, etc.) in the context of the increasing globalisation of English. Other issues covered include: the relationships between English and other official languages, the relationships between English and indigenous languages, language and national identity, the history of recording regional Englishes in dictionaries, and the role of British and American English as 'linguistic imperialists'. The countries which receive major emphasis are Australia, Bangladesh, Canada, Fiji, India, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore, and South Africa.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The Oxford Handbook of Banking, Second Edition provides a comprehensive evaluation of the role of banking in the world economy. Many of the top experts in the world integrate theory and evidence to help inform our understanding of banking and its regulation. There is careful analysis of recent events during the financial crisis as well as the full range of historical experience. The sophisticated discussion is useful both for banking experts and novices. * Douglas W. Diamond, Merton H. Miller Distinguished Service Professor of Finance, University of Chicago Booth School of Business *
Despite its challenging subject matter, much of this book flows like an edited transcript of lectures. * Richard Healey, Metascience *
...provides an excellent introduction to central topics in the philosophy of language shaped by the linguistics turn...Elbourne writes lively prose and he conveys the sense that the contemporary study of meaning is rich, exciting and developing rapidly. * Dr Paul Elbourne, Queen Mary, University of London *
Greig's accessible and beautifully illustrated study is a comprehensive account of the cultural and social politics of a new kind of fashionable elite that reigned during the long eighteenth century. * Erika Rappaport, American Historical Review *
