David Crystal's classic English as a Global Language considers the history, present status and future of the English language, focusing on its role as the leading international language. English has been deemed the most 'successful' language ever, with 1500 million speakers internationally, presenting a difficult task to those who wish to investigate it in its entirety. However, Crystal explores the subject in a measured but engaging way, always backing up observations with facts and figures. Written in a detailed and fascinating manner, this is a book written by an expert both for specialists in the subject and for general readers interested in the English language.

The Internet is now an integral part of contemporary life, and linguists are increasingly studying its influence on language. In this student-friendly guidebook, leading language authority Professor David Crystal follows on from his landmark bestseller Language and the Internet and presents the area as a new field: Internet linguistics. In his engaging trademark style, Crystal addresses the online linguistic issues that affect us on a daily basis, incorporating real-life examples drawn from his own studies and personal involvement with Internet companies. He provides new linguistic analyses of Twitter, Internet security, and online advertising, explores the evolving multilingual character of the Internet, and offers illuminating observations about a wide range of online behaviour, from spam to exclamation marks. Including many activities and suggestions for further research, this is the essential introduction to a critical new field for students of all levels of English language, linguistics and new media.

(Uncorrected OCR) Abstract In the last few decades, English has continued its spread as a 'global language' throughout many societies in the world, including Asian countries. Currently, around 80% of the information stored in the world's computers is in the medium of English, and the Internet is often regarded as a flagship of Global English. (Graddol, 1997). However, does Internet really help spread English as a global language? The present study looks at how English is taught with the use of Internet in the English Department of the Polytechnic University, with particular reference to the roles of the university's administrative sector, the teachers and the students. It then proceeds to look at what actually happens among teachers and students with the use of the Internet in teaching and learning of English language. In attempting to investigate the importance of the Internet for local university teachers and learners of English, it is hoped that the results of this research will provide insights into the effectiveness of the Internet as a learning tool in the context of one tertiary institution in the HKSAR.
