Description/Abstract

ELF research suggests English is used to express and create emergent, fluid, and hybrid cultures. Successful ELF communicators must thus be able to negotiate diverse cultural frames of reference. The notion of 'intercultural awareness' discussed in this paper offers a characterization of the skills and knowledge necessary to achieve this.
