TOWARDS NEUTRALITY IN ENGLISH
“What could be better than a type of English that saves you from having to
re-edit publications for individual regional markets? Teachers and learners
of English as a second language also find it an attractive idea= both often
concerned that their English should be neutral, without British or American
or Canadian or Australian coloring. Any regional variety of English has a set
of political, social and cultural connotations attached to it, even the so-called
‘standard’ forms.” – Peters (2004- International English)
According to this viewpoint, International English is a concept of English
that minimizes the aspects defined by either the colonial imperialism of
Victorian Britain or the cultural imperialism of the 20
th
century United
States. While British colonialism laid the foundation for English over much
of the world, International English is a product of an emerging world
culture, very much attributable to the influence of the United States as well,
but conceptually based on a far greater degree of cross-talk and linguistic
transculturation, which tends to lessen both U.S. influence and British
colonial influence.
The development of International English often centers around academic and
scientific communities, where formal English usage is prevalent, and
creative and flowery use of the language is at a minimum.
66. According to the passage, why should English be neutralized?
(A)To minimize all the troubles it may cause when appearing in local
context.
(B)To avoid re- editing.
(C)To make it more colorful.
(D)To make it easier to use.
67. Region English is __________________________
(A)the same everywhere in the world
(B)revealed through the region’s political, social and cultural standards.
(C)British, American, Canadian or Australian English
(D)varied from regions to regions because of their differences in
political, social and cultural norms
68. According to Peters, what is International English?
(A)It is the kind of English used all over the world.
(B)It is the English for international commerce, business, aviation and
sports.
(C)It is the most neutral English, which can be used all over the world
without any misunderstandings or troubles caused to the users.
(D)It is the English brought around the world by British colonialism.
69. What is the main factor leading to the appearance of International
English?
(A)International trade.
(B)Globalization in culture.
(C)British colonial influence.
(D)The great economic power of the US.
70. Where can the development of International English be mostly found?
(A)In art fields.
(B)In politics.
(C) In everyday conversation.
(D)In academic fields and in science.
Exercise 8: Read the following passage then answer question 61-65.
After each question, there are four possible answers marked A, B, C
and D. Choose the correct answer by circling its corresponding letter A,
B, C or D.
BRITISH POLITENESS
Do you, learners of English, ever wonder whether repeating and trying to
remember various everyday English expressions, such as ‘Excuse me, could
you tell me where the nearest taxi rank is?’ has any value other than in
exams? Well, I must admit that such things didn’t cross my mind until last
February when I got a letter from British Council, saying that I had won a
language course in England.
The polite question was the one I had to ask on arrival in Parkstone, a
picturesque part of Poole with lots of semi-detached houses on either side of
each street. What struck me most was the kindness of an old lady, who
happened to leave Safeway’s just after my getting off the coach. Not only
did she show me where to phone for a taxi, but she also gave me a hand with
the luggage. I was really surprised, too, when the taxi driver got out of the
car and helped me put the bags into the boot. I immediately thought of
Polish taxi drivers who usually do not make the slightest effort to help you,
apart from pressing the right button and waiting for the boot to open.
In spite of all the stereotypes about reluctance towards foreigners, the
English turn out to be an extremely polite and open nation.
61. According to the passage, where does the author come from?
