Document Type : Research Paper


Not mentioned


The present study is an attempt to provide a current synopsis of World Englishes within globalized communities, as well as theoretical and applied feasibility of global linguistic features of English as an International Language (EIL). To do so, first, three main reactions against the spread of English by scholars around the world are discussed. Then, the possibility of describing and teaching such globalized varieties will be evaluated. Finally, current challenges ahead of the researchers in the field will be presented.
