This volume fills an important gap in exploring English in the domains of
business and commerce through the prism of sociolinguistics and the sociology
of language, as opposed to analyzing business genres or taking a
linguodidactic approach. It expands the regional coverage of English in
Europe, with several studies based in Central Europe, and also considers
contexts which interact with Europe even though they are physically outside of
it (Asia, Africa). It addresses English as just one of several languages at
play in the ecology of the countries. It focuses not only on the position of
languages as declared in documents of various organizations, that is, language
policy, but also everyday linguistic practices as observed in business
contexts, that is, interactions. The studies are divided into three thematic
areas: ideologies and discourses on English in the business sphere, the
management of English in business and organizational contexts, and English and
other languages on local and international labor markets. It will be of
interest to readers concerned with multilingualism in the economic sphere and
the workplace and the interplay between macro and micro levels during the
management of communication in organizations.
