Winner of the Modern Language Association's Thirty-Third Mina P. Shaughnessy Prize Winner of the BAAL Book Prize 2014 Translingual Practice: Global Englishes and Cosmopolitan Relations introduces a new way of looking at the use of English within a global context. Challenging traditional approaches in second language acquisition and English language teaching, this book incorporates recent advances in multilingual studies, sociolinguistics, and new literacy studies to articulate a new perspective on this area. Canagarajah argues that multilinguals merge their own languages and values into English, which opens up various negotiation strategies that help them decode other unique varieties of English and construct new norms. Incisive and groundbreaking, this will be essential reading for anyone interested in multilingualism, world Englishes and intercultural communication.

The spread of English as a global language has resulted in the emergence of a number of related fields of research within applied linguistics, including English as an International Language, English as a Lingua Franca, and World Englishes. Here, Heath Rose and Nicola Galloway consolidate this work by exploring how the global spread of English has impacted TESOL, uniting similar movements in second language acquisition, such as translanguaging and the multilingual turn. They build on a number of concrete proposals for change and innovation in English language teaching practice, whilst offering a detailed examination of how to incorporate a Global Englishes perspective into the multiple faces of TESOL, putting research-informed practice at the forefront. Global Englishes for Language Teaching is a ground-breaking attempt to unite discussions on the pedagogical implications of the global spread of English into a single text for researchers and practicing teachers.

The book presents a fundamental study of the coordination of language action in chat communication. It uses numerous examples to present the coordination of activity in chatting as a high-level individual project, and discusses the question of the extent to which analytical and descriptive categories which have proved their worth in conversational analysis can sensibly be adopted for the description of chat-based communication processes. The theoretical findings are lent empirical support by a case study based on multi-modal data of user activities while chatting.

Lost in Translation zwischen Peking und London Die junge Chinesin Zhuang reist zum ersten Mal in den Westen und taucht in eine fremde Welt ein. Sprache und Umgangsformen, Essen und Trinken, Liebe und Sex – alles ist befremdlich, überraschend und manchmal unbegreiflich. Ebenso amüsante wie erhellende Missverständnisse verbinden sich zu einem rasanten Verwirrspiel zwischen Ost und West und Mann und Frau. Ein außergewöhnliches Lesevergnügen! Als Zhuang in London ankommt, fühlt sie sich vollkommen verloren. Ihre Eltern haben sie in den Westen geschickt, damit sie Englisch lernt. Doch es ist nicht nur die fremde Sprache, die ihr Mühe macht. Sie sieht sich mit unfreundlichen Taxifahrern, ungenießbarem Essen und seltsamen Umgangsformen konfrontiert. Unbekannte Wörter, ungewöhnliche Begebenheiten und verblüffende Beobachtungen hält sie in einem kleinen Notizbuch fest, das zum Rettungsanker im Meer der Missverständnisse wird. Geborgen fühlt sich Zhuang nur im Kino – dort begegnet sie schließlich auch der Liebe. Doch im Westen erweist sich diese als ebenso kompliziert wie der Alltag. Xiaolu Guo inszeniert den Kulturschock erhellend und voller Witz. „Kleines Wörterbuch für Liebende“ ist ein kluges, unterhaltsames Verwirrspiel um kulturelle Unterschiede und nicht miteinander zu vereinbarende Lebensformen. Zugleich ist es eine zärtliche, bittersüße Liebesgeschichte.

World Englishes A Critical Analysis

Winner of the BAAL Book Prize 2016 The field of "World Englishes" takes on ever more importance in the modern era. Mario Saraceni's World Englishes: A Critical Analysis looks at the developments in the field from a critical perspective. It examines the historical, linguistic, ideological and pedagogical aspects in the study of the ever-evolving forms, roles and statuses of English around the world. The principal aim is to offer a critical overview of the field in order both to inform readers about the main issues at stake and to challenge established positions and descriptive/analytical paradigms. The book has four sections, each of which reviews established accounts and offers alternative perspectives on those. "History” considers representations of the evolution of 'old English' and 'new Englishes' and begins to unveil the strong link between conventional accounts and ideological motivations. "Language” critically examines the traditional notion of 'difference' in the description of varieties of English, and discusses more recent orientations which aim to describe English as a lingua franca and the phenomenon of language hybridity. "Ideology” examines ideological debates around the presence and status of English in the world, such as linguistic imperialism, language ownership and language ecology. The final section, "Pedagogy” discusses pedagogical implications, such as the choice of appropriate 'models' of English and considers the possibility of teaching English as a fully de-anglicised language.

While English has become the lingua franca in science, business, and other fields, scholars still grapple with the implications of its adoption in many other settings and cultures. To what extent should English be introduced and taught in schools around the world? Who “owns” the English language and can therefore shape its structure and aims? What are world Englishes and how can teachers demonstrate them to their students? Is English the language of the oppressor, an imperialist tool, or does global English offer an opportunity for greater understanding and cooperation amongst peoples and cultures? This volume of critical essays explores these and other questions surrounding language, education, and culture in the globalized world. Honoring students’ cultures while trying to prepare them for an uncertain and constantly changing future is the resounding theme of this book. The contributors to this volume are as multi-cultural and multi-faceted as such a volume would demand. The essays include authors and studies from Algeria, India, Iran, Ghana, Germany, Poland, Tunisia, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, United Kingdom, the United States of America, and Yemen. The perspectives offered in this volume contribute greatly to the ongoing conversations on language, education, and globalization.

The Language Of Adult Immigrants

This book is the first to explore the constitution of language learner agency by drawing on performativity theory, an approach that remains on the periphery of second language research. Though many scholars have drawn on poststructuralism to theorize learner identity in non-essentialist terms, most have treated agency as an essential feature that belongs to or inheres in individuals. By contrast, this work promotes a view of learner agency as inherently social and as performatively constituted in discursive practice. In developing a performativity approach to learner agency, it builds on the work of Vygotsky and Bakhtin along with research on ‘agency of spaces’ and language ideologies. Through the study of discourses produced in interviews, this work explores how immigrant small business owners co-construct their theories of agency, in relation to language learning and use. The analysis focuses on three discursive constructs produced in the interview talk–subject-predicate constructs, evaluative stance, and reported speech–and investigates their discursive effects in mobilizing ideologically normative, performatively realized agentive selves.
