This book "supplies a vocabulary of English words and idiomatic phrases 'arranged … according to the ideas which they express'. The thesaurus, continually expanded and updated, has always remained in print, but this reissued first edition shows the impressive breadth of Roget's own knowledge and interests."
The sociopolitical dimensions of English language teaching are central to our profession. These dimensions include language policies, cultural expectations, and the societal roles of languages. This book aims to present these issues to practising and aspiring teachers in order to raise awareness of the sociopolitical nature of English language teaching.
