English is known around the world as the universal language; the global lingua franca. It is therefore not surprising that English is, alongside Mandarin Chinese, the most commonly spoken language in the world. It is the native language in many countries including the UK, the USA, New Zealand and Australia. There are approximately 350 million native speakers of English around the world, as well as approximately 160 million people whose second language is English. English is also an official language in almost 50 countries including India, Singapore and Nigeria. There are two main variants of the language: British and American English. These two variants are extremely similar, to the point that it is often impossible to distinguish between then when written, but also share several significant differences in words, phrases and pronunciation.
From the 1700s to the Second World War, the British Empire steadily grew in size and influence. At its peak, it covered approximately one quarter of the land area of the planet, or approximately 20% of the world’s population. Great Britain’s resulting global political, industrial and military influence caused the significance of the English language to dramatically increase across the globe, reaching from Britain’s colonies in the Americas across the oceans to India and Australia.
Despite the British Empire’s accelerated post-war decolonisation and disintegration, the influence of English continued to grow in the late 20th Century with the overwhelming popularity of Hollywood and the British and American music industries.
English is one of the official languages of most international organisations today, for example NATO.
Due to the legacies of the British Empire, the post-war global predominance of the USA and the resulting 50 years of Americanisation in our societies, English is today a universal language of great importance to linguists, and has also become known as the language of contracts.
