Distance between the writer and the reader. This is despite the fact that the two participants are on first-name terms, though it is worth also pointing out that the absence of a salutation (dear, hi) and the use of the rather remote closing (regards) further adds to the sense of entitlement apparently claimed by the writer. ’.

We look at this very important aspect of language use in some detail in Chapter 11 (‘Translanguaging’). Is this conception of the value of English as a symbolic resource what underlay the students’ lack of attention to linguistic detail? If so, then it is unfortunate that such conceptions do not tend to travel well. What might be acceptable on a public campaign poster in the subcontinent, where English has both symbolic and linguistic value, appears sloppy, to say the least, in the British context, where the symbolic value of English as English is zero.

6╇ Conclusion Unpredictability can be frustrating and puzzling when we try to analyse language. Indeed, as Cameron (2012b) points out, some people just feel very uncomfortable with language change, feeling it to be somehow indicative of other kinds of (unwished-for) change in society itself. And yet change must be embraced, for non-fixedness is not just something that complicates matters, it is a defining feature of language itself. Ideas about language prestige, appropriacy, quality, standardness, even grammatical correctness itself are in a state of flux, whether this is immediately visible or not, and it is the job of the language noticer to try to work out what is happening beneath the surface.
