    Default Euro-English versus British English

    Hello !
    I am writing my bachelor thesis and my task is to compare Euro-English with British English. And I am finding out, that it is not as easy as it seemed at first sight :) I have found few ebooks and articles, have written few pages and my sources are spent. It's quite hard to find some more extensive text or even book directly focused on this topic. If you know about anything that could be useful for me, I would really appreciate it. Thanks.

    I mean British English as a standard English and Euro English is understood as a new form of English, used by people from different countries in Europe. Some call it "language of EU". Here, you can look at the short presentation about it:

    I hadn't realised this idea was around formally, so I can't help, I am afraid. Perhaps others are more up to date than I.

    Browsing the web, I have found and read few reviews about a book by Sandra Mollin. It is called "Euro-English. Assessing Variety Status." This book would help me quite a lot. Isn't here anyone, who knows where could I possibly find electronic version of it? google.books offers me only a sample
