Meeting Description:

Englishes Today: Theoretical and Methodological Issues
University of Vigo, 18-19 October 2013

Englishes Today is concerned with the expansion of English around the world and with its development into distinctive first, second and foreign language varieties, these having been subject to different classifications and models of analysis (see specially Kachru 1986, McArthur 1998 and Schneider 2007). The spread and globalization of English has proved to be of interest in the study of diverse linguistic phenomena, as well as a testing ground for various frameworks and research traditions, among them typological linguistics, second language acquisition, contact linguistics and sociolinguistics. 

>>From a methodological perspective the study of World Englishes poses a challenge, and attempts have been made to address these in corpus linguistics, sociolinguistic fieldwork and variationist studies. The aim of this conference is to contribute to this increasingly fashionable but still largely under-explored field of research by bringing together ideas from different frameworks and approaches, these dealing with any aspect of Englishes today in terms of their origin, status and development.

Plenary Speakers:

Stephanie Hackert, University of Munich
