About the Authors
  • In applied linguistics, being explicit about ontologies of English, and how they underpin educational ideologies and professional practices, is essential. For the first time, this volume presents a critical examination of the ways in which English is conceptualised for learning, teaching, and assessment, from both social and cognitive perspectives. Written by a team of leading scholars, it considers the language in a range of contexts and domains, including: models and targets for EFL, ESL and EAL teaching and testing, and the contested dominance of native-speaker 'standard' varieties; English as a school subject, using England's educational system as an example; English as a lingua franca, where typically several languages and cultures are in contact; and English as broader social practice in a world characterised by unprecedented mobility and destabilisation. Readers are provided with a balanced set of perspectives on ontologies of English and a valuable resource for educational research and practice.

    • Examines conceptualisations of English in a range of practical domains and contexts, providing readers with points of comparison and contrast
    • Covers both social and cognitive conceptualisations of English, providing a balanced set of perspectives on ontologies of English
    • Includes a framework for the ontological analysis of English, which can be applied to readers' own relevant contexts
