Abstract:

All languages encode aspects of culture and every culture has its own
specificities to be proud of and to be transmitted. The papers in this book
explore aspects of this relationship between language and culture,
considering issues related to the processes of internationalization and
localization of the English language. The volume is divided into two sections,
complementing each other; the first one (Localizing English) focuses on the
significance of ethnic knowledge, local culture, and tradition wherever English
is used. The second one (Internationalizing English) deals with the degrees
and patterns of internationalization of English deriving from its contact with
diverse cultures and its adaptation to different professional settings and
communicative purposes.
