Abstract:

The issue of English and its global versions has a lot to do with
globalization at large as the most invasive factor currently shaping the
way we live, produce cultural artifacts, and communicate across linguistic
and political borders. The distinction between correct and incorrect usage
being to some extent irrelevant within a global context, this volume looks
at Global English in relation to global media, both traditional and
electronic (magazines, websites, and news distribution). It then addresses
the issue from the point of view of language teaching, academic discourse
and world music. The final section is concerned with the role of English
within communities of professionals (marketing, accounting, psychoanalysis)
in an international context.

The volume includes essays from scholars who adopt different viewpoints,
ranging from corpus linguistics to lexicology, sociolinguistics, and
translation studies.
