This book "challenges the assumption that there is only one 'legitimate' and homogenous form of English or of any other language" and "supports the view of different/alternative histories of the English language and will appeal to readers who are skeptical of 'standard' language ideology."
English in Europe- The Acquisition of a Third Language
"Third language acquisition and trilingualism have recently come more and more into the focus of applied linguistics. While the research trends of product-orientated bilingualism and process-orientated second language acquisition have tended to follow largely different tracks, third language acquisition and trilingualism are in much close contact. With its comprehensive multidimensional coverage of English as a third language in Europe the present volume provides a welcome contribution to a rapidly expanding field of research" -Hakan Ringbom, Abo Akademi University
