Abstract

In her chapter, Wicaksono reviews the social and cognitive arguments that have been advanced to categorise users of English as either ‘native’ or ‘non-native’ (primarily place and age). She points out that ‘what counts as English’ is taken as a given, in both the scholarly literature and in TESOL professional practice, and argues that the ‘native’/‘non-native’ distinction is untenable once the monolithic conceptualisations underpinning it are exposed. Her chapter is also a call to action, suggesting ways in which raising ontological awareness can be embedded in teacher training and hiring practices.
