The American Scholar: No English, No Career? - Jessica Love

The American Scholar: No English, No Career? - Jessica Love | Teaching English in the Classroom | Scoop.it

According to a review by linguist Ranier Enrique Hamel, the percentage of scientific publications written in English skyrocketed from 36 percent in 1880 to 64 percent a century later. In the natural sciences, numbers are even higher: 75 percent of publications were written in English in 1980; by 1996 it was 91 percent. It is unlikely that the trend has reversed itself. Top-ranked journals such as Science, Nature, and Cell are still every bit as English as their titles would suggest. Science, it seems, requires a lingua franca, and English is currently it.

According to linguist Ranier Enrique Hamel, the percentage of scientific publications written in English by 1996 was 91 percent! A big question awaiting universities is how to manage the dominance of English in academia in relation to the human (or social) sciences and the humanities, where matters of language are much more central to the investigation - both as a means as well as an object of investigation.
