Title: Contending with Globalization in World Englishes
Edited By: Mukul Saxena
Tope Omoniyi
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?isb=9781847692740
Series Title: Critical Language and Literacy Studies
Description:

This book engages with English in globalization, re-examining and
re-interpreting the contemporary contexts of its acquisition and use. The
chapters contained in this book weave together four inter-related themes
that define the role of English in the global context: the ‘centrality of
structure’, ‘relationships of interdependence’, ‘social constructions of
difference’ and ‘reproduction of inequality’. These themes enable the
authors to draw attention to the dynamics of the contemporary realities of
the ‘English-speaking’ and ‘English-using’ nations, especially as they
compete for cultural, social, economic and symbolic capital in global
networks. In engaging World Englishes with the sociolinguistics of
globalization, the authors raise some fundamental questions about the
status, structure, and functions of World Englishes.
