Georgia and the Globalizing English- Some Peculiarities of Mapping Georgia within the Kachruvian Model of the World Englishes
AbstractThe phenomenon of globalization with its extremely complex and multidimensional nature has become one of the hottest issues of the on-going political, economic and scholarly debate. Alongside economic and political aspects, the socio-linguistic ones tend to have far-reaching implications for virtually every facet of our life and are likely to pose many difficult questions during the years to come within the scope of communicative competence. One of the objectives of the current research is the study of Georgia within the socio-linguistic, cultural and educational contexts of globalization in an attempt to map it within a complex matrix of the Global English .The framework of research is inspired by the Kachruvian model of World Englishes , and includes literature review, interviews, participant observations and questionnaire-based data collection. The current article mainly focuses on the peculiarities of the in-awareness of Georgian respondents of the globalization components including linguistic ones with regards to the elaboration of effective strategies for achieving linguistic competence in English.
