Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Title: Global Englishes and Transcultural Flows
Written By: Alastair Pennycook
URL: http://www.routledge.com/shopping_cart/products/product_detail.asp?sku=&isbn=9780415374804&parent_id
Description:

The English language is spreading across the world, and so too is hip-hop
culture: both are being altered, developed, reinterpreted, reclaimed. This
timely book explores the relationship between global Englishes (the spread
and use of diverse forms of English within processes of globalization) and
transcultural flows (the movements, changes and reuses of cultural forms in
disparate contexts).

This wide-ranging study focuses on the ways English is embedded in other
linguistic contexts, including those of East Asia, Australia, West Africa
and the Pacific Islands. Drawing on transgressive and performative theory,
Pennycook looks at how global Englishes, transcultural flows and pedagogy
are interconnected in ways that oblige us to rethink language and culture
within the contemporary world.

Global Englishes and Transcultural Flows is a valuable resource to applied
linguists, sociolinguists, and students on cultural studies, English
language studies, TEFL and TESOL courses.
