Title: Understanding English as a Lingua Franca
Written By: Barbara Seidlhofer
URL: http://elt.oup.com/catalogue/items/global/linguistics/oxford_applied_linguistics/978019437500
Description:

The spread of English as the international lingua franca (ELF), like other
aspects of globalization, calls for a reconsideration of conventional ways of
thinking. This book argues that ELF needs to be understood as an entirely
natural use of language in its own right and not as an erroneous version of
native speaker English, and demonstrates how the ‘nonconformist’ formal
features of ELF are functionally motivated by the dynamics of communicative
interaction.
