    Reviews

    "[...] the volume represents a comprehensive, authoritative, comparatively thorough, and undoubtedly detailed overview of the broad and diversified field of English in contemporary Europe. Having been published less than three years ago, it is still up to date and the broadness of its scope and depth of its analysis make it compulsory reading for anyone with an interest in global English, world Englishes or English as a lingua franca."
    Dustan Clarke in: Slovo a slovesnost 80 (2019), 150-154
