Author: Englbert Thaler. In this issue, we are honoured to feature an article by Professor Crystal on the need for an online cultural dictionary. His investigation of culture and its importance in a global economy is something to be strongly welcomed. The second article is by world Scopus recognised author Elena Malyuga of RUDN University on the role of professional jargon in international business and how to improve understanding in international business meetings and negotiations, an important aspect of successful communication.

In the process of studies, cross-cultural characteristics of communicative behaviour of representatives of Eastern and Western cultures in verbal and non-verbal communication are carefully studied. At the same time, communicative failures in intercultural communication, their causes and ways of dealing with them, which is especially important.

With globalisation and the opening of boundaries the English language has become an important means of communication within and across borders. This volume is rich in offering English language teaching and learning perspectives in second and foreign language settings. Many of the examples are taken from Malaysia, where English though officially deemed a second language, is seen as a third language in the rural areas where there is no external supportive target language enviroment. This is an ideal setting to discuss English language related issues as the issues raised and discussed apply to many countries where English is taught and learnt under similar settings and conditions. Microlinguistic levels of description are shown against the backdrop of a macrolinguistic perspective and language practitioners are made aware that pedagogy and syllabi change with times and local and national needs. The issues raised in this volume include the need to consider the variety of the target language to be taught and the challenges faced in teaching the English language. Raising motivational levels of learners where there is no larger supportive target language environment, divergences between what is taught and what is required in the job market and a focus on examinations which affects the methodology are some of the issues raised, discussed and analysed. No volume on language teaching would be complete without a discussion on the use of ICT and literature in language teaching. With teaching there is a need to evaluate and a part of the book is devoted to peer and national level evaluation.
