Squaring the Circles: Issues in Modeling English Worldwide.
Bruthiaux, Paul
International Journal of Applied Linguistics, v13 n2 p159-78 2003
Suggests that Kachru' model representing English worldwide must adapt by (1) moving away from a focus on nation-states in favor of a sociolinguistic focus on English-speaking communities wherever they are found and (2) recognizing that fundamental differences across contexts for English worldwide cannot be glossed over in support of specific varieties.
