Abstract:

English today is a truly global language which plays an important role in
international communication, trade, diplomacy, sport, science, technology
and culture. One of the consequences of the global predominance of English
is that non-native speakers of English now outnumber native speakers. The
enormous diversity in the way English is spoken around the world makes it
difficult to determine a common set of norms. The need to identify with the
local culture often comes into conflict with the need to be understood
internationally and creates a complex picture of English diversity.

This collection of essays by internationally renowned academics brings
together different theoretical perspectives that reflect this debate on
norms. The first section examines different conceptions of English as an
international language, looking at world Englishes, English as a lingua
franca, and 'standard' English. The second section looks at the pedagogical
implications of English as an international language, and addresses such
questions as: how can we design a curriculum for teaching English, what
methods are most effective for teaching English, and what are the key
considerations for the ESL classroom to remain globally relevant? English
in the World will be of interest to students and researchers of world
Englishes, applied linguistics and English as a second/foreign language.
