Abstract [en]

Over the last three decades or so, there has been a major paradigm shift in academic and linguistic approaches to the study of English worldwide. From the 1980s onwards, there has been increased recognition that the majority of people speaking English in the world today are to be found in multilingual societies worldwide, a growing consensus that English language is no longer the possession of such “native speaker” countries as Britain, the United States, and the increasing recognition of World Englishes.
