Abstract [en]

Within the fields of applied linguistics, educational linguistics, and sociolinguistics, two important and overlapping fields are those of world Englishes (WE) and Second Language Acquisition (SLA). For many years, WE and SLA have co‐existed as adjacent fields of inquiry, each with their own communities of practice, scholarly journals, and academic conferences. Despite this, it has long been recognized that the two fields are not only adjacent, but interlocking at a number of levels. While world Englishes has often taken a varieties‐based approach to multilingual societies, SLA has investigated individual experiences of language learning and bilingualism. While mainstream SLA has focused on the cognitive and structural aspects of language learning, WE has been crucially concerned with the social aspects of language acquisition in multilingual societies. For a range of different reasons, it appears clear that, potentially, each of these fields has much to offer the other, in terms of theoretical perspectives as well as approaches to research and scholarship. Whether such an assumption is well founded is thus a central issue for this special issue, which explores the relationship between these two fields from theoretical as well as methodological perspectives.
