With its international prominence in today’s world, English is in contact (to greater or lesser degrees) with most languages and societies around the globe. The results of that contact vary from location to location, depending on both the linguistic and the socio-cultural factors of the particular local context. This special issue of ELOPE focuses on the presence of English specifically in Central Europe and its interaction with the languages and societies of the region.
