Global English and Local Language Policies: What Denmark Needs.
Phillipson, Robert
Language Problems & Language Planning, v25 n1 p1-24 Spr 2001
Analyzes the mythology and imagery underpinning global English, the many labels used to describe English, and the transition from an imperialist language into one that meshes with ongoing processes of Europeanization and Americanization, largely through the influence of transnational corporations. Implications are drawn for Danish, in Denmark, a country that traditionally has had a laissez-faire attitude toward language policy. (Author/VWL)
