Abstract:

As a result of globalization, higher education institutions throughout the
world are adopting English for parts of their education. Higher education is
becoming increasingly international and thus linguistically diverse, for
educational, idealistic and financial reasons. This book presents a
much-needed description of English as a lingua franca (ELF) from an
international university setting and focuses on form and pragmatic issues,
using authentic spoken data. It provides useful insights into how
communicative effectiveness can be achieved in spoken lingua franca
communication.
