Since my postdoctoral thesis "Mental Grammar" I have been working on a new typology of languages which is based on a mixture of communicative, perceptual, cognitive and semiotic parameters. Three so-called communicative supertypes are distinguished: Reality-oriented languages (Chinese and Russian); speaker-oriented languages (Japanese and Spanish); and hearer-oriented languages (English and Danish). At present I try to find out how people with different supertypes as their mother tongues communicate when they use English as a business lingua franca.
