Description

The Routledge Handbook of English as a Lingua Franca (ELF) provides an accessible, authoritative and comprehensive introduction to the main theories, concepts, contexts and applications of this rapidly developing field of study.

Including 47 state-of-the art chapters from leading international scholars, the handbook covers key concepts, regional spread, linguistic features and communication processes, domains and functions, ELF in academia, ELF and pedagogy and future trends.

This handbook is key reading for all those engaged in the study and research of English as a lingua franca and world/global Englishes more broadly, within English language, applied linguistics, and education.

Reviews

"The chapters in this handbook constitute a valuable resource for students developing an interest in ELF, and for academic researchers, who will also find the suggested readings and ample bibliographic references a useful foundation for further investigations. The rapid pace of change in ELF research, still at an elementary stage in some areas, gives one reason to believe that a second edition of this handbook will be necessary in due course." -- Gibson Ferguson, University of Sheffield
