Abstract:

This volume discusses several facets of English in today's multilingual
Europe. It emphasizes the interdependence between cultures, languages and
situations that influence its use. This interdependence is particularly
relevant to European settings where English is being learned as a second
language. Such learning situations constitute the core focus of the book.
The volume is unique in bringing together empirical studies examining
factors that promote the learning of English in Europe. Rather than
assuming that English is a threat to linguistic diversity and cultural
independence, these studies discuss psycholinguistic factors such as the
input, and sociolinguistic factors such as the type of English that is
targeted in learning. The contributing authors are well-established
specialists who have worked on multilingualism, English as a Lingua Franca
and second language acquisition. The book will be of interest to applied
linguists, sociolinguists and teachers of English as a foreign language.
