English as a world language in Scandinavia and elsewhere (Part 1)

Bidragets oversatte titel: Engelsk som verdenssprog i Norden og andre steder

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningpeer review


This is a paper in two parts, both dealing with the localization of the concept of English as a “world” or “global language”. In the first part, a number of general notions like “globalization” are discussed, and a plea is made for studying the role of any language in a given context ecologically, i.e. in relationship to, and in interaction with, other languages.
