Understanding English as a Lingua Franca : A Complete Introduction to the Theoretical Nature and Practical Implications of English Used as a Lingua Franca Paperback

Part of the Oxford Applied Linguistics series

Description

The number of English speakers in the world continues to grow, but the vast majority are non-native speakers using English to communicate with each other, rather than with native speakers.

This book examines the use of English as a Lingua Franca (ELF) from various perspectives.

It explores the various ways in which ELF represents a challenge to the predominance of the native-speaker model, as well as its implications for other fields of linguistic research and for English language teaching.
