I'll rush for it first thing on Monday morning!

I'd been thinking about the other too as well, the reviews at amazon.co.uk all say what you do. To be honest, I was a bit afraid of his target being a larger public... but the temptation's been strong all the same. I think I'll have a look at that History after my exams... It seems a good starter for the His of English course I'm so much looking forward to. :D

That's what Wikipedia knows about him. I read parts of his Cambridge Encyclopaedia of Language (the Hungarian translation, A nyelv enciklopédiája) and I very much liked it. I also bought his The Stories of English, a sort of popular History of English directed at an intelligent lay audience (a művelt közönség számára :) ) Both of them made really absorbing reading. But why not have look at the original 1997 edition of English as a Global Language? It's right there in SEAS Library. :)

This is indeed sociolinguistics, i.e., applied linguistics. DEAL had Andrea Agnes Remenyi on their staff list, who is a sociolinguist, but, alas, she's away now. I don't know her conditions and I am not entitled to release her email address (but Google's first hit will tell you: :) http://www.google.co.hu/search?hl=hu&q= ... %A9s&meta= ). Your topic may also belong to dialectology, but DELG currently is not strong in the field. You may nevertheless try to approach Dr Nadasdy.

Hi all,

I can see someone has already approached you with some question beggining with "I'm interested in this field...." Well, me too. In fact, I'm fond of all kinds of linguistics, and I find it quite hard to decide what to specialize on. Though I'm not much of a teacher, I'm really interested in the other half of the subject, which deals with learning. I've come across a very interesting subject, but besides being a recently discovered one, it doesn't really fit into the field of either theoretical or applied linguistics. This is the topic of English's being a global language, and I'm particularly interested in finding out how it affects the language. It's quite obvious that as non-native speakers speak their own English (especially in Asia), a native speaker has to try to understand it (e.g. if he wants to deal with business questions, etc.).

I asked Judit Kormos what field this question it belongs to, and she said it's closest to sociolinx... As a matter of fact, I like the topic so much that I'd be glad to conduct some research on it... and write my thesis on it.

Do you happen to have any suggestions as to what I should do?
I'm only a second-year student, but I'm finishing my "basic subjects" next term, so it would be good to know what to specialize in :roll:

Besides, I want to ask for some books for Christmas. What do we know about David Crystal? (His book, "English as a Global Language" seems to deal with my topic)

Thanks a lot!

Just saw on the ``real'' notice board: you can apply for the post at DEAL, deadline: 25 Nov, criteria: 5 terms finished, 4 or 5 in ANN-299. Have a look at the details on the board between ADS 210/a and 210/b.

You might try asking people who know. I am thinking of the head of DEAL (Dorottya Hollo), or teaching assistants at DEAL (find them at http://seas3.elte.hu/cgi-bin/dir.pl?deptsel=DEAL&search=gyak).

You may apply for the post of teaching assistant (demonstrator) at DEAL. It is usually advertised every May/June for the next academic year.

I'm just looking for some (future) fellow students who can give some good advise. I am not sure yet about what interest me the most, maybe SLA (less psychology, more didactics :lol:). I would be very much interested in leading a seminar (maybe ac.skills or sg.). Is it possible to get in for an everyday guy (I mean not a genious), or just forget it :?:

Hi.

Be a bit more specific plz. What R U interested in? Group dynamics, motivation, SLA or what? R U lookin for books, web pages or fellow appling students?

I've learnt some appling at CETT, and I'm gonna specialize in it. By the way, I'm a supplementary student (AKN).
