Thank you for your question. That quote comes from an article by Kwang-chih Chang and Ward H. Goodenough in Transactions of the American Philosophical Society (1996) and is cited in the book “Emergent Lingua Francas and World Orders: The Politics and Place of English as a World Language” by Phyllis Ghim-Lian Chew. The citation has been added to the article.
