About ELF:

    英语作为通用语研究对全球化过程中的英语进行了崭新的诠释,颠覆了传统意义上本族语英语使用者和非本族语英语使用者之间的区分,对传统的将标准英语视为非本族语英语使用者的唯一参考标准之观点进行了批判,强调英语语言的多样性,以及英语标准的多样性。这一崭新视角对传统英语研究带来挑战,也为英语研究带来无限创新机遇。目前,基于该视角的研究涉及语音、词汇、语法、语用、语篇分析、跨文化交际过程、文化、身份、态度等各方面。

    该课题研究拥有核心刊物《英语作为通用语期刊》,由英国南安普顿大学全球英语研究中心,维也纳大学英语作为通用语语料库研究团队,赫尔辛基大学英语作为通用语学术语料库团队共同创办。该课题出版系列丛书《英语作为通用语研究发展》,由南安全球英语中心Jennifer Jenkins教授和Will Baker博士共同主编。该课题每年举办一次国际研讨会“英语作为通用语国际大会”,每年吸引世界各地学者、研究员,以及在读研究生数百人参会。

    该课题研究在欧洲已取得长足发展,在亚洲该领域发展处于开始阶段。自2008年芬兰赫尔辛基大学成功举办第一届ELF研讨会以来,至今已经成功举办7届,分别在芬兰(ELF1)、南安普顿(ELF2)、维也纳(ELF3)、香港(ELF4)、伊斯坦布尔(ELF5)、罗马(ELF6)和雅典(ELF7)。鉴于此背景,在中国举办ELF大会将有助于与国际学术界接轨,让国际学术界了解中国的声音,促进中国学者在这个领域的发展,并争取亚洲范围内的学术力量整合,进一步促进国际交流与学术合作。
