    This paper examines ELF (English as a lingua franca) lecturers’ self-perceptions of their language use and ability to communicate in English as well as what language ideologies guide their self-perceptions. To investigate this, a phenomenographic approach was used. The input data for the phenomenographic investigation were collected from three ELF lecturers of engineering, who participated in a self-assessment of their language abilities and two semi-structured interviews that focused on themes and questions related to their perceptions of their own language use and to their language ideologies. Three types of language ideologies were identified: standard language ideology, standard English native speaker (NS) language ideology, and English as ‘other’. The findings show that none of the lecturers adhere strictly to standard language ideology or to standard English NS language ideology and that lecturers’ self-perceptions change depending on what they choose as their standard measure.
