Linguistic Imperialism Continued

Robert Phillipson (Author)
Synopsis Linguistic Imperialism Continued brings together writings by Robert Phillipson since the publication of Linguistic Imperialism in 1992. It consists of articles published in anthologies and journals. It also contains reviews of the work of others on global English, language policy, and the role of English in multilingual settings worldwide. Among the central concerns of the book are English in globalisation and neoliberal empire, how the project of establishing English as a 'world' language came about, and the balance between English and other languages in higher education. One recurrent theme is whether English is learned and used in a healthy balance with other languages English as a Lingua Franca, or in pernicious ways that threaten the future of other languages English as a Lingua Frankensteinia. Seven scholars respond to an analysis of this by Robert Phillipson in an article that shows how the concept Lingua Franca is often used misleadingly. Linguistic imperialism triggered a major re-thinking of the English teaching profession, as it connected English language teaching to wider political and economic forces. Linguistic Imperialism continued analyses how the dominance of English persists in the twenty-first century.
