Liberation Linguistics and the Quirk Concern.
Kachru, Braj B.
This paper addresses the concerns of Sir Randolph Quirk, former President of the British Academy and founder of the Survey of English Usage, regarding current paradigms used for describing various issues related to the diffusion of English in the global context. The historical context for these concerns is provided, a discussion of these concerns in terms of myths and multilingual realities is presented, and the application of Quirk's concerns to language policy is highlighted.
