The phenomenon that is world Englishes (WE) has been embraced (fully or otherwise) by scholars worldwide ever since it was first introduced in the 1970s by Braj Kachru. The field has been steadily growing as more work on the Englishes is being done. That being said, there is a need to rethink, reimagine, and reassess traditional paradigms to make sure that the concept of WE is still viable and sustainable in the present times. World Englishes: Rethinking Paradigms is an attempt to do so exactly.
