Man Bahadur Jora


This study tries to explore the features of Nepalese English. Along with the spread of globalization, there grew cultural flows and linguistic influences. Apart from globalization, global English, English and Englishes existed in the spreading of language territory. When they came into existence, the developing countries like Nepal got the impact of it. Consequently, Nepalese English is being used by people from Nepal although it is intended to be taught like native speakers. Behind this reason, English here is taught by non-native speakers and there is due influence of Nepali language. This paper reflects the experiences and uses of English by non-native teachers and students as well. Though Nepalese English is a variety of English, it has typical features that we can observe and realize among the Nepalese scenario. I interviewed the teachers and students to draw the features of Nepalese English. Finally, on the basis of their use of it at phonetic, syntactic, semantic and discourse level, I have talked about themes taken from the rigorous data analysis.
