Eric A. Anchimbe is an Associate Professor for English Linguistics at the University of Bayreuth. He is a Principal Investigator in the Africa Multiple Cluster of Excellence and the Bayreuth International Graduate School of African Studies (BIGSAS) both at the University of Bayreuth. He is the author and editor of several books on varieties of English, identity construction, language policy and pragmatics. His current research focuses on the pragmatics of Postcolonial Englishes (using the framework, Postcolonial Pragmatics, he and Richard Janney introduced), sociolinguistics, World Englishes and political discourse. His recent monograph, Offers and Offer Refusals: A Postcolonial Pragmatics Perspective on World Englishes (2018, Benjamins), fills a gap in the meagre literature on pragmatics of African Englishes
