This special issue of Nordic Journal of English Studies explores a number of themes related to the spread of English as a global language in academic and professional domains. This spread is closely linked to global trends in technological development, population mobility,transnational business organization, and education, which is increasinglydriven by market forces and neo-liberal ideologies. The papers published in this special issue reflect the current status of English in academic and professional contexts, above all as a lingua franca of international communication in science, education, and business.
