Janet Stanton had a quesstion inre internationalization. Uhh...I spent 5
years in Japan and I think that it was coined by the Japanese and is used
as a capitalized noun. I don't know how other countries view its use. The
ESL/EFL teachers used to laugh at it because it's a rather awkward
(heh-heh) use of English but, then, you should read some of the slogans
and tee-shirts! Let's see what it looks like both ways:
internationalization, Internationalization. Which do you like best? I
think that's what it all boils down to...unless you want to be true to
the Japanese, that is. I kind of like it without the capital.
