SINCE ITS introduction in the 18th century, English in China has gone through three stages: partial colonization and Chinese
English (CPE); a Chinese-influenced variety often called Chinglish; and a more recent indigenization that has resulted in a variety known as both Chinese
English and, more recently (with a subtle change of emphasis), China
English. This paper discusses these stages and calls for more attention to be paid to the nativization of English in China in the 21st century.
