Will English Rule the World?Streaming Video - 2006
Although members of the E.U. value its practicality and the African National Congress calls it indispensable, not everyone agrees that English should dominate the global dialogue. In this program, Thomas Patterson, of the Kennedy School of Government; Nicholas Ostler, of the Foundation for Endangered Languages; the president of CNN International; advocates and opponents of the English-only movement in America; and others debate the value of English as an international political language while coming to terms with the likely extinction of nondominant languages in America and abroad. Can diversity and identity be retained in a world of fewer languages?
