Abstract

Judo has gone through two major changes in order to be accepted by the world community: the introduction of 1) weight divisions and 2) the blue-colored uniform. Likewise, the English language had to be changed often tremendously to fit the needs of the locals when it travelled across cultural boundaries. This is the fate of what is considered to be an instance of culture. The concept of zero, an example of civilization, does not follow the same fate. This study examines English that breaks away from the native standard from the perspective of a cultural theory and discusses some implications for using and teaching English.
