The interaction between the global and the local has inspired inquiry into the multifarious manifestations of English nowadays, stimulating scholarly research into its diverse linguistic, cultural and pedagogical landscapes.
Drawing together various strands of the Global English debate, the papers in this volume question and expand on the interaction between Global English and local contexts in the Alpine-Adriatic region and examine its complexities from different, yet complementary, perspectives: the cultural, the methodological (ELT), the translational and the linguistic.
