Abstract

The English language is now widely recognised as the predominant international language, particularly in domains such as business, communications, and education. Perhaps a lesser‐known area where English also plays a key role as a global language is that of international diplomacy, a topic that Patricia Friedrich explores in her edited volume English for diplomatic purposes . In this volume, Friedrich sets out to illustrate how productive linguistic practices and interactions can be deployed in order to resolve differences, disputes and conflicts.
