 Viewing the Morphology of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge From a New Perspective
Based on this model, the hummocks and hummocky ridges that dominate the small-scale volcanic morphology of the AVR in the 29° N segment are formed by the focusing of fissure eruptions to several vents; the seamount is formed by the rapid evolution of an eruption to a single vent.
The along-axis orientation of the ridge mimics neighboring faults and fissures, and it is inferred to have erupted from similar fissures.
Hummocks and hummocky ridges are produced as the eruption becomes confined to several discrete vents, similar to subaerial spatter cones or spatter ramparts that form along fissures (Figure 4).

Many Europeans mix features of these two varieties, and are speaking what can be described as Mid-Atlantic English (MAE) (see Modano 1996).
The paradigm of MAE and of the 'centripetal circles of international English,' both of which are attempts to position the English language as a lingua franca and not as the possession of peoples who speak 'prestigious' varieties, requires a rethinking of the manner in which language instruction is conducted.
Clearly, the choice of educational standards for English in the EU, the development of cross cultural communicative strategies in ELT activities, as well as the notion of MAE, are all interrelated.
