This article regards the use of English as lingua franca, the motivation for the existence of a global international language and the choice of English to be the one.
The English language has been regarded as a reflection of the new world culture. The use of English as an international language has brought about some lexico-semantic, morphological and even syntactic interferences. The question is: will English be a better variant to national languages separating world cultures today?
This question is discussed from a Bulgarian perspective. In this context Bulgarian is seen as one of the languages influenced by the new world culture and its language - English. It is important to find out whether this would open doors for multicultural interaction of emancipated cultures or will put an end to original self-expression of smaller national traditions blending them in a unified global stream.
