Abstract:

As a result of globalization, higher education institutions throughout the world are adopting English for parts of their education. Higher education is becoming increasingly international and thus linguistically diverse, for educational, idealistic and financial reasons. This book presents a much-needed description of English as a lingua franca (ELF) from an international university setting and focuses on form and pragmatic issues, using authentic spoken data. It provides useful insights into how communicative effectiveness can be achieved in spoken lingua franca communication.

Linguistic Field(s): Applied Linguistics
                            Pragmatics
                            Sociolinguistics

Subject Language(s): English (eng)

Written In: English (eng)
