ELF research in the Chinese context

ELF research in the Chinese context
ELF research in the Chinese context
China has a large English-knowing population, with great relevance to the spread of English as a lingua franca around the globe. This makes China a focus of the debate as to the future of English (e.g. Crystal 2008, Graddol 1997, Jenkins 2015). While research into ELF in the European context has yielded fruitful results, it is high time to explore what ELF research in the Chinese context can offer and add to our understanding of ELF as a global phenomenon. This symposium thus brings together four studies focusing on ELF in the Chinese context to exemplify some issues that might be comparable or incomparable to those of interest in other localities in response to the present spread of ELF. It is also the purpose of this symposium to invite the discussion of ELF implications for the understanding of language realities and policy issues in various contexts

Abstract

China has a large English-knowing population, with great relevance to the spread of English as a lingua franca around the globe. This makes China a focus of the debate as to the future of English (e.g. Crystal 2008, Graddol 1997, Jenkins 2015). While research into ELF in the European context has yielded fruitful results, it is high time to explore what ELF research in the Chinese context can offer and add to our understanding of ELF as a global phenomenon. This symposium thus brings together four studies focusing on ELF in the Chinese context to exemplify some issues that might be comparable or incomparable to those of interest in other localities in response to the present spread of ELF. It is also the purpose of this symposium to invite the discussion of ELF implications for the understanding of language realities and policy issues in various contexts
