English as a Lingua Franca and Multilingualism

Language Awareness and Multilingualism pp Cite as. This chapter explores the relationship between two modes of international communication: the use of English as a lingua franca ELF and multilingualism. Since it effectively allows speakers of different languages to interact with each other and so brings their respective L1s into contact, it is necessarily related to multilingualism. Recent decades have seen an unprecedented spread of ELF as both consequence and driving force of globalization, resulting in a fast-growing field of research that is concerned with the use of ELF as a naturally adaptive linguistic process, with theoretical as well as applied linguistic implications. The focus of this chapter is on the main areas and objectives of ELF research, highlighting those aspects that are relevant for multilingualism and language awareness and for language education more generally. It is argued that ELF is complementary to other manifestations of multilingualism and not at all in conflict with it, mobilizing as it does all the linguistic resources of the interactants.

Oxford University Press , pp. From the perspective of the speakers themselves, this is the first book to explore attitudes towards ELF in general and ELF accents in particular, their effects on ELF speakers' identities, and ways in which the problems can be addressed in teacher education, English language testing, and ELT materials.
