Phillipson, Robert.



288 pages




British linguist Phillipson (emeritus, Copenhagen Business School) assembles here a encyclopedia entry on linguistic imperialism, seven articles that he has written since his well known 1992 Linguistic Imperialism, and six book reviews on closely related topics. Essay topics include language policy and linguistic imperialism, whether English is no longer a foreign language in Europe, the linguistic imperialism of neoliberal empire, English as lingua franca or lingua frankensteinia in European integration and globalization, and whether English in higher education is a panacea or pandemic.
