The communicative strategies of ASEAN ELF users1

Show Summary Details


This chapter examines the communicative strategies of English as lingua franca (ELF) speakers in Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) countries. It discusses different strategies, including lexical anticipation and lexical correction, from the perspectives of both speaker and listener. The chapter also suggests that the English-language classroom could profitably become a place where a major focus is on collaborative cross-cultural communication and where a lingua franca approach to language teaching could be adopted.

Keywords: communicative strategies; ELF speakers; ASEAN countries; lexical anticipation; lexical correction; cross-cultural communication

Chapter.  7177 words.  Illustrated.
