China English, a Developing Variety of English

Hui Yun

Abstract


Nowadays, English can be seen or heard almost everywhere in many countries including China. With the arising of the English varieties, besides British and American ones, China English is argued by some scholars that it should be regarded as a variety of English, since it takes Standard English as its core, and can be used to express certain unique things relating to the Chinese society and culture (Li, 1993). China English is different from Chenglish or Chinese English, and it carries certain culture and society characters in many aspects and hardly can be replaced. China English has some syntactic and grammatical distinctions due to the influence of the Chinese language culture (Hu, 2004).
