Concordo com tudo, mas nisso das línguas imperiais / imperialistas
o espanhol do 12 de outubro também não se salva:
"É tartarugas todo o o caminho abaix--" ;-), Ooops,
It's turtles all the way down
(incluo o português, evidentemente).

Saúde / Health ;-) ,

There is no representative of any other super-central language area (Chinese, Spanish, French, ….), least from minority languages. And it is, presumably, an English Only conference. Is that what globalisation is all about?

>> Against the backdrop of one of the most diverse and international cities in the world, we invite language and communication scholars to take part in an on-going debate of sociolinguistic change under globalization. We are asking two fundamental and interrelated questions: How are we to continue theorizing language and communication under globalization? How can sociolinguistic theory shed new light on our understanding of globalization?
