Abstract:

There have been considerable recent demographic shifts in the use of 
English worldwide. English is now undoubtedly (and particularly) an 
international lingua franca, a lingua mundi. The sociolinguistic reality of 
English language use worldwide, and its implications, continue to be hotly 
contested.

This is one of the first books to provide a detailed and comprehensive 
account of recent empirical findings in the field of English as a lingua franca 
(ELF). Cogo and Dewey analyze and interpret their own large corpus of 
naturally occurring spoken interactions and focus on identifying innovative 
developments in the pragmatics and lexicogrammar of speakers engaged in 
ELF talk.

Cogo and Dewey's work makes a substantial contribution to the emerging 
field of empirical ELF studies. As well as this practical focus, this book looks 
at both pragmatic and lexicogrammatical issues and highlights their 
interrelationship. In showcasing the underlying processes involved in the 
emergence of innovative patterns of language use, this book will be of great 
interest to advanced students and academics working in applied linguistics, 
ELF, sociolinguistics, and corpus linguistics.

"This book is a ground-breaking investigation into recent developments in the 
English language. The data underpinning the book has been rigorously 
collected and meticulously analysed, and Cogo and Dewey's wealth of 
original examples of ELF lexicogrammar and pragmatics will provide an 
invaluable resource for students and researchers of ELF alike for years to 
come. Meanwhile, the authors' penetrating discussions of the processes and 
motivations involved in ELF communication challenge tired old equations of 
proficiency with nativeness, and cast important new light on what it means to 
be proficient in English in our increasingly globalized world."

Professor Jennifer Jenkins, Chair of Global Englishes and Director of the 
Centre for Global Englishes, University of Southampton, UK
