Title: Linguistics And The Myth Of Nativity: Comments On The Controversy Over 'new/non-native Englishes'
Author: Rajagopalan K.
Abstract: This paper is an attempt to take a fresh look at the controversy over the theoretical status of the so-called 'new/non-native' Englishes (JoP 24(3) 1995). I argue that, when all is said and done, what the participants in the debate do succeed in foregrounding is the untenability of the category called 'native speaker' in the world of practical affairs. I also suggest that the frequent and unquestioning appeal to the category may turn out to be motivated by an insidious ideological agenda (albeit, hopefully unwittingly entertained by those who defend it).
