This book investigates the theoretical, empirical and pedagogical issues to help us better understand what is happening with English as a Lingua Franca (ELF) communication and to activate this knowledge in respective communicative contexts. It focuses specifically on Japanese contexts and also includes theoretical and practical sections pertinent to all ELF researchers, practitioners and students, irrespective of their national or regional differences. It further attempts to connect this new field of research to established fields of linguistics and applied linguistics such as communication, assessment and multilingualism by exploring them from an ELF perspective, which is challenging but essential for the development of the field. Exploring ELF in Japanese Academic and Business Contexts: Conceptualisation, research and pedagogic implications includes chapters about: English in a Global Context Own-language use in academic discourse English as a lingua franca in international business contexts A linguistic soundscape/landscape analysis of ELF information provision in public transport in Tokyo Using pragmatic strategies for effective ELF communication: Relevance to classroom practice This book will be of interest to scholars and post-graduate students working in the fields of Applied Linguistics/TESOL. It will also engage researchers studying the growing influence of English around the world.

English is increasingly used as a lingua franca (ELF) in communicative situations the world over with the acceleration of globalisation. This is in line with the increased introduction of English-medium instruction (EMI) to higher education institutions in many parts of the world to further promote both students’ and faculty’s mobility to make them competitive and employable in the globalised world, and to make their institutions more attractive and reputable. EMI and ELF, however, are rarely explicitly investigated together despite the fact that the spread of EMI cannot be separated from that of ELF. This volume tackles the issue head on by focusing on EMI in higher education from an ELF perspective. The volume includes contributions by Asian, European, Middle Eastern, South American and Anglo-American scholars. It discusses language policies, attitudes and identities, analyses of classroom EMI practices, case studies and finally, pedagogical implications from an ELF perspective, incorporating also theoretical and empirical issues in conducting EMI courses/programmes. The volume will be of great interest and use, not only to those who are conducting research on ELF, EMI, CLIL, language policy and related fields, but also to classroom teachers and policy makers who are conducting and/or planning to start EMI courses/programmes in their institutions or countries all over the world.

This book employs the realm of English Language Teaching (ELT) as a discursive point of departure to explore how individuals, groups, entities and institutions apprehend, embrace, deal with, manipulate, problematize and resist glocal flows of people, ideas, information, goods, and technology. It apprehends and attends to tensions arising from the fluidly local-global construction and negotiation of borders of identity and interaction within a diverse array of contexts and English education therein. These tensions, whether conceptual or pedagogical, may arise in and through governmental and institutional policymaking, teacher training, or curriculum and materials development, and in the learning experience both within and beyond the classroom, as teachers and students engage with course content and each other.

Global Englishes and Change in English Language Teaching analyses the impact of current ELT practice, bringing together research from the fields of Global Englishes and ELT to provide suggestions for the implementation of a Global Englishes for Language Teaching curriculum. Calling for a critical re-examination of ELT to ensure that classroom practice reflects how the English language functions as a lingua franca, this book: highlights that multilingualism, not monolingualism, is the norm in today's globalised world, and that 'non-native' English speakers far outnumber 'native' English speakers; showcases the author’s research into English language learner attitudes towards English and ELT in relation to Global Englishes; makes practical suggestions for pedagogical change within ELT. Global Englishes and Change in English Language Teaching is key reading for postgraduate students and researchers in the fields of TESOL/ELT and Global Englishes.

Das vorliegende Buch liefert einen breiten und fundierten Überblick über die Stellung der deutschen Sprache in der Welt, einschließlich deren Geschichte. Der Autor erklärt diese Stellung aus der globalen Konstellation aller Sprachen, vor allem konkurrierender internationaler Sprachen und der Weltsprache Englisch. Dabei untersucht er die Bedingungen internationaler Kommunikation in Handlungsfeldern wie Wirtschaft, Wissenschaft, Diplomatie, Tourismus, Wortkunst, Medien und Fremdsprachenunterricht in ihren Besonderheiten wie auch durchgängigen Bedingungen. Ebenso werden die Vorteile der starken internationalen Stellung einer Sprache für ihre Sprecher aufgezeigt und ihre sprachenpolitischen Interessen daraus abgeleitet. Wichtige Themen sind Status und Funktion der deutschen Sprache in international operierenden Unternehmen, in der Wissenschaft, in der Europäischen Union und im Internet. Außerdem werden die Förderung der deutschen Sprache durch die deutschsprachigen Staaten dargestellt und Verbesserungsvorschläge unterbreitet. Das Buch zeigt auch durchgehend weitere Forschungsmöglichkeiten auf und liefert dazu einschlägige methodische Hinweise. Die Stellung der deutschen Sprache in der Welt ist der gänzlich neu verfasste Nachfolgeband zum Standardwerk Die internationale Stellung der deutschen Sprache (1991).

Arbeiten zur Syntax gesprochener Sprache verdeutlichen immer wieder, dass Interagierende sich sowohl bei der Produktion als auch Rezeption von Äußerungen an konstruktionellen Schemata („constructions“) orientieren. Mit dem vorliegenden Sammelband werden systematische Vernetzungsmöglichkeiten zwischen Ansätzen der „Construction Grammar“ und interaktional ausgerichteten Studien zur Grammatik der gesprochenen Sprache aufgezeigt. Die empirischen Analysen widmen sich verfestigten Konstruktionen unterschiedlicher Komplexität in deutschen und englischen Kommunikationssituationen. Statt grammatische Strukturen, ihre Formen und Funktionen kontextlosgelöst zu betrachten, studieren die Beiträger Grammatik im konkreten Interaktionsprozess und beziehen dabei bislang meist ausgesparte Phänomene wie die Prosodie, die Dialogizität und die Prozesshaftigkeit sprachlichen Handelns in die Analyse grammatischer Konstruktionen mit ein.
