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.
