English Only Worldwide or Language Ecology?
Phillipson, Robert; Skutnabb-Kangas, Tove
TESOL Quarterly, v30 n3 p429-52 Aut 1996
Examines the role of English worldwide and introduces paradigms: a "diffusion-of-English paradigm" and an "ecology-of-language paradigm." Discussion of the two paradigms in light of recent tendencies within the European Union, the postcommunist states, and the international arena emphasizes the alliance between language planning and policy and wider ideological, political, economic, cultural, and social trends.
