Kim (2012) criticizes ICAO’s LPR

In her PhD thesis, Kim (2012) criticizes native English speaker bias in ICAO’S language proficiency requirements. Having studied Korean personnel’s views, she points out that communication is a shared responsibility and that accommodation strategies are central to communication success in the aviation setting, as in other lingua franca contexts. Unfortunately, the thesis doesn’t seem to be available on the web for now, but a part of her study has been published in the Australian Review of Applied Linguistics.
