Seidlhofer, Barbara
International Journal of Applied Linguistics, v11 n2 p133-58 2001

Argues that although this orientation is often recognized as inappropriate and counter-productive, it persists because discussions about global English on the meta-level have not been accompanied by a necessary reorientation in linguistic research.
