Second Language Users and Emerging English Designs
Jordan, Jay
College Composition and Communication, v61 n2 pW310-W329 Dec 2009
As English spreads as an international language, it evolves through diverse users' writing and speaking. However, traditional views of ESL users focus on their distance from fairly static notions of English-language competence. This research uses a grounded theory approach to describe a range of competencies that emerge in ESL users' interactions with native-English-speaking peers and instructors. (Contains 8 notes.)
