Abstract

As English is used widely in the world, an increasing number of individuals pay attention to describing the phenomenon and the status of English. This paper summarizes critically Seidlhofer’s article on the case for a description of English as a lingua franca. It first introduces Seidlhofer’s major arguments briefly, and then proceeds to analyze the feasibility of describing English as a lingua Franca and establishing an ELF corpus. Finally, relevant research results of other researchers and concluding remarks are given.
