Research project: Learning, use and perceptions of English as a Lingua Franca communication in European contexts (LINEE) - Dormant - Dormant

Currently Active: 
No

This collaborative project with partners in Southampton, Szeged and Prague forms part of the wider LINEE network funded under the European Union 6th Framework (Languages in a Network of European Excellence).

Project Overview

The team is conducting research into the acquisition of English as a Lingua Franca (ELF) and its use in conversational settings, and into European non-native and native English speakers' perceptions of effective ELF communication. The research will enable us to draw conclusions about English language learning and teaching in multilingual environments, about perceived links between effective communication and correctness according to native-speaker English norms, about the awareness of/value placed on communication skills such as accommodation and codeswitching, and about native English speakers' ability to communicate in European ELF settings.
