Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is a great summary / study of growing shifts in the conceptualisation of English usage among non-native speakers throughout the world. It comes from the author whose book "The Phonology of English as an International Language" spear-headed the English as a Lingua Franca movement - a challenge to assumptions, bias and asymmetry held within native-speaker English standards in EFL pedagogy and growing non-native speaker dominated contexts of English use. Anybody with an interest in sociolinguistics or the politics of language will be interested in the this book.

With chapters covering comprehensive literature on current trends in world Englishes and identity, as well as a research project of her own, Jenkins offers the reader substantial insight into a growing concept that is at the forefront of theoretical developments in both language teaching and sociolinguistics.
