English as a Lingua Franca: Theorizing and Teaching English examines the English used among non-native speakers around the world today and its relation to English as a native language, as well as the implications for English language teaching.

Challenging and incisive, this book analyses positive and negative accounts of English as a lingua franca, and its linguistic features, within the context of:

  • native and World Englishes
  • multilingualism and intercultural communication
  • sociolinguistic issues including accent and identity
  • classroom teaching and learning

English as a Lingua Franca is a useful guide for teachers and trainee teachers, and will be essential reading for advanced students and linguists concerned with multilingualism, language contact, language learning, language change, and the place of English in the world today.
