What does "English teacher" mean?
a/ A teacher who teaches English.
b/ A teacher who is English. The person may teach English or not.
I guess the answer is A. In that case what is the corresponding term for the b case? (A teacher who is English. The person may teach English or not.)
Re: English Teacher
Well, your answer may be right and it may be wrong as well. In my opinion English Teacher can mean both, depending on which word are you stressing (I am refering to word stress, both are content words and you can stress on any one of them depending on what you wish to convey).
