Discourses, Communities, and Global Englishes free pdf The issue of English and its global versions has a lot to do with globalization at large as the most invasive factor currently shaping the way we live, produce cultural artifacts, and communicate across linguistic and political borders. The distinction between correct and incorrect usage being to some extent irrelevant within a global context, this volume looks at Global English in relation to global media, both traditional and electronic (magazines, websites, and news distribution). It then addresses the issue from the point of view of language teaching, academic discourse and world music. The final section is concerned with the role of English within communities of professionals (marketing, accounting, psychoanalysis) in an international context. The volume includes essays from scholars who adopt different viewpoints, ranging from corpus linguistics to lexicology, sociolinguistics, and translation studies.
