Abstract

The increasing global ubiquity of English and its often contentious (albeit often desired) role—particularly in developing contexts—has been a key issue in our profession for the past 25 years. It has also been, and particularly since the publication of Phillipson’s (1992) Linguistic Imperialism, the cause of much debate and soul-searching in the English language teaching world and beyond.
