Omani & Texan English: Common Threads

Baxter Jackson
University of Nizwa , Oman

Abstract
While seemingly dissimilar, Omani and Texan English (TXE) share common threads of non-standardization in terms of pronunciation, grammar, vocabulary and discourse. These areas are highlighted to help teachers show students how to either side step these stigmatizing characteristics of OE (Omani English) or embrace them as a show of solidarity.

Key words: World Englishes, Omani English, identity, solidarity, non-standardization writing about and exploring the Middle East.
