These are from Wiley-Blackwell publishing. There are 18 articles available from 9 different journals. I don't have any idea how long they will be available so read up while you can!

Happy learning,
Mark

There's a really interesting article there titled "Closing a conceptual gap:the case for a description of English as a lingua franca" by Barbara Seidlhofer.

It covers the idea of English as a lingua franca but not a native English model. Instead the article promotes a new direction for language research/teaching, probably one that will gain more strength as time goes on. It's the empowerment of non-native teachers and non-native speakers as owners of English as an International Language (EIL.)

I'm actually only a little more than half way through the article, but it's pretty interesting.[/b]
