Title: Analysing English in a Global Context
Edited By: Anne Burns
Caroline Coffin
Description:

Analysing English in a Global Context offers you a global perspective on the changing uses and forms of English and helps you to develop the skills needed to analyse these forms. Together with its companion volumes, it presents English language teaching in a variety of specific institutional, geographic, and cultural contexts. Analysing English in a Global Context addresses the key contemporary issues in English language teaching and applied linguistics. The articles - a range of classic and specially commissioned pieces - have been carefully chosen and edited and together they provide an overview of the rapid growth and spread of English in its many varieties worldwide. A general introduction outlines the approach, organisation, and different perspectives of the collection. Up-to-date and fully international, the Reader foregrounds some of the most challenging questions for future developments in English language teaching worldwide. Topics include : the internationalisation of English; the status of the non-native English teacher; the recognition of language variation; the debate on standard versus non-standard varieties.
