Title: The Idea of English in Japan
Subtitle: Ideology and the Evolution of a Global Language
Series Title: Critical Language and Literacy Studies
Publisher: Multilingual Matters
This book examines the ways in which English is conceptualised as a global language in Japan, and considers how the resultant language ideologies - drawn in part from universal discourses; in part from context-specific trends in social history - inform the relationships that people in Japan have towards the language.
