Language Learning, Globalism, and the Role of English.
Tonkin, Humphrey
ADFL Bulletin, v32 n2 p5-9 Win 2001
Discusses the predominance of English in the world, but suggests that while more and more people are speaking English, a greater number of people around the world are learning other languages, leaving Americans behind. Points out that academics need language to move beyond a narrow context for intellectual exchange. (Author/VWL)
