Book Information

   

Title: The Idea of English in Japan
Subtitle: Ideology and the Evolution of a Global Language
Written By: Philip Seargeant
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?isb=9781847692016
Series Title: Critical Language and Literacy Studies
Description:

This book examines the ways in which English is conceptualised as a global
language in Japan, and considers how the resultant language ideologies –
drawn in part from universal discourses; in part from context-specific
trends in social history – inform the relationships that people in Japan
have towards the language.
