Linguistic Paradoxes and Cultural Domination
Tsui, Amy B. M.
International Multilingual Research Journal, v1 n2 p135-143 Aug 2007
Spring (2007) provides an interesting account of the global flow of education ideas and how it has always been largely motivated by a fear of the "other." As he points out, the intensified spread of English is a result of choice rather than coercion. In this article, the author focuses on the spread of English and address two aspects in relation to it: first, the linguistic paradox created by the spread of English; second, the cultural domination that accompanies the spread of English.
