Contextual Lecture: The Future of the English Language

With Professor Simon Horobin

Now spoken by over a billion people, the English language continues to evolve as it finds new speakers and uses. Are these changes improvements or evidence that standards are slipping? Who gets to decide what is right and wrong? Will standard English continue to dominate, or are we seeing its replacement by a variety of different Englishes?
