Linguistic Human Rights and English in Europe.
Phillipson, Robert; Skutnabb-Kangas, Tove
World Englishes, v16 n1 p27-43 Mar 1997
Looks at policies of linguistic expansion worldwide, particularly English in the colonial and post-colonial periods. Considers whether English expansion in continental Europe represents a threat or blessing. Considers ambiguities in English being promoted as a language serving international purposes and simultaneously British and American interests, and the attitudes of scientists needing to publish in English.
