A Global Language for the Global Village? A Response to Mary Snell-Hornby.
Anderman, Gunilla
Current Issues in Language and Society, v6 n2 p139-42 1999
This response to an article on the effect of recent developments (particularly globalization and advances in technology) on the production and perception of language discusses the role of English as a global language and issues surrounding translation. Suggests that stereotyping resulting from non-nuanced and unsubtle transfer of information might be avoided if translation into English avoided "McEnglish." (Author/VWL)
