Introduction

At the Global Language Monitor, we look at English as Global English. Rather than focusing on geography (British English, American English, Indian English, we focus on usage—how English is spoken today, by the world’s scientists and technologists, the youth, in the boardrooms of multi-national corporations, in the world of entertainment, and the like.

We’ve also come to realize that there are several momentous trends that are occurring in  Global English right now: 1) A vocabulary explosion: the number of everyday words we use to communicate — those recorded in dictionaries, in newspapers, in  blogs and on the internet, in correspondence to our loved ones, in classroom assignments, in paying our bills, and in recording our history — is expanding at an unprecedented rate, the total just over a million  words, and 2) A geographic explosion: the English language, which at the time of Shakespeare was spoken in a narrow band in the south of Britain by  only a few million people, has suddenly, and rather unexpectedly, become the language of global discourse, commerce, science, entertainment, and communications,  with  speakers  now  approximating 1.58 billion people.

 As an intense observer of the English language, nothing could make me more pleased. And I’m thrilled to be a continuing witness to its evolution, watching and anticipating the countless new ways it will impact the lives of billions around the globe for decades (and even centuries) to come.

Never before in the history of the planet has a single language held as dominant a position as English does today.   Some 1,580,000,000 people can now read this sentence in its original language. Think about that for a minute.

Dispatch From the Front Lines (9/11 Illustrated)

By 
 

 Paul JJ Payack

I created these thirteen collages two nights ago in the early hours of the morning in the very heart of the District of Columbia, a few blocks from the White House.

 

 

 

 

The previous evening had taken on all the attributes of a deathly beautiful, moonlit autumn evening, with a warm and gentle breeze from the Southwest, and all the splendor this Capitol City is capable of displaying, from the commanding presence of the Capitol Dome to the silent testimony of the Washington Obelisk bolding piercing into and through the dark.

But all this beauty belied the all-persuasive tension, like a hitherto unknown and yet-to-be-discovered form of gravity gently pulling on one’s heart.  (I await some post-Modern Isaac Newton or Albert Einstein to establish the attendant theoretical and mathematical constructs.)  

For this was, and is, and remains a city under siege.  Under siege by an invisible enemy which could (and can) be found anywhere, elsewhere or nowhere.  As my wife opined, it was one of the most protected areas on the planet, and undoubtedly this was true, but, of course it gained that distinction because it also one of the most dangerous places on the planet and perhaps the most highly targeted of targets set squarely in the night scopes of the stealthily silent invaders.

Since the events of September 11th, I have attempted to somehow encapsulate something that cannot readily be captured, at least from the perspective of days and weeks.  As with all things human, a distance and perspective of a generation or two …

Global Language Monitor’s Olympic Brand Scorecards are the ultimate guide to the most bitter of all battles being fought on the various Olympic fields — the billion-dollar battle between and among the various levels of IOC Sponsorship, and the mega battles being fought with the Non-affiliated Marketers (NAMs) and the sponsors themselves.

In these pages, you will read about and better understand the fierce behind-the-scenes warfare that the Global Language Monitor has been tracking for six Olympiads now.

And don’t for a minute think that these battles are being waged in any way but the most sophisticated strategies, tactics, and algorithms.

GLM has been tracking PyeongChang for three years now, and are already deep into our analysis of the Tokyo and even the Beijing Games.  Paris isn’t far behind.

You can read the document in a ‘You Are There’ manner since we present each of the Games in the way they actually unfolded.

We hope this all will help you have an even more enjoyable experience since you are now entering the stealth world of Olympic Ambush Marketing.

Organizations pay tens of thousands of dollars per month for this type of research, but we are offering this to you for $499.00, providing you with a convenient entry-point to subscribe to our service.
