Rajend Mesthrie examines the rise of a new variety of English among Indian migrant workers indentured on the plantations of Natal in South Africa. Considering the historical background to, and linguistic consequences of, language shift in an immigrant context, he draws significant parallels between second language acquisition and the processes of pidginization and creolization. South African Indian English is compared with other dialects in South Africa, with English in India, and with Englishes generally.

- Rajend Mesthrie draws important parallels between second language acquisition and the processes of pidginization and creolization
- He compares SAIE with other South African dialects, Indian English and Englishes throughout the world. He focuses on its distinctive syntax, with respect to word order and clause structures
