This study investigates the use of creativity and deviation in Nigerian English, and the implications it has for international intelligibility and acceptability.
It examines these deviation and creative forms in sounds, lexemes, syntactic forms, semantic forms used in Nigerian English in comparison with similar forms as used in Standard British English. The study reclined on interlanguage and languages-in-contact theories as the basis for the investigation.
Data for the study were gathered basically from existing literature on both Nigerian English and Standard British English. At each level and/or sub-level of linguistic organization, 5 to 10 items were selected from each of Nigerian English and Standard British English.
Adopting Standard British English as control; these items in the Nigerian variety of English were analyzed and compared with those in Standard British English, and the areas of divergence noted.
Findings of the study indicate that at all the levels of linguistic organization; significant deviation exists in Nigerian English from Standard British English.
English is one of the most widely used and spoken languages in the world today. Ferguson in his Foreword to Braj Kachru points out that, ‘… there has never been a single language which spread … over most of the world, as English has done in this century’ (Kachru, ix).
According to Charles Barber, English is spoken by well over four hundred million native speakers and roughly about the same member of people speak it as a second language (236).
It is also generally said to be a world language because it has spread to other continents of the world through trade, colonization and conquest.
In Nigeria, for instance, English is spoken as a second language. It was first introduced to Nigerians during the middle of the 16th century when the British came to Nigeria for purposes of exploration, trade, and colonization.
Before English was introduced to Nigerians, Nigerians had their native languages, which they used to satisfy their linguistic needs.
