As English becomes institutionalized in nations that do not share its Western cultural traditions, the language broadens. The English produced in new contexts naturally takes on the flavor of its surroundings, delivering a blend of native and Western linguistic features, semantic and pragmatic qualities, literary heritages, and the like. The literature written in these distinctive varieties of English is often called contact literature. Writers of contact literature deny that a non-English culture is inexpressible in English and argue that the cultural material in contact literature will stretch or reshape the expressive qualities of English. The rise of contact literature in English provides an opportunity to study the literary effort of international writers and to observe the vital process of language change. This change is of special interest to English teachers and students, since it is their language they are observing, and since the development it undergoes will make it a more sensitive and authentic vehicle for creative expression of consciousness in Western and non-Western cultures.
