Pakistani English

English was first introduced in the Indo-Pak subcontinent by the British in the 16th century. By 1947, when Pakistan and India gained their independence, English had become so entrenched in the socio-political fabric of the region that it was retained as an official language in both countries. PakE is heterogeneous not only because of the socio-economic, geographic, and educational background of the people who speak it, but also because of the various first languages of its speakers.
