In Search of Lingua Franca: The Myths of English Only
Type of Culminating Activity
Master of Arts in English, Rhetoric and Composition

As I watched news reporters and magazine articles flip between the two as if they existed apart from each other, I was surprised that no one was pitting the two together to find out what was really going on.
