Abstract:

This volume approaches the analysis of variation in English from
diachronic, diatopic, and contrastive/comparative perspectives. The
individual case studies, all closely interrelated, are organized into three
parts or sections. Part I (Diachronic Studies) applies a variationist
methodology to the analysis of developments in the use of the courtesy
marker please, adverbs in -ly, the s- genitive and a number of phrasal
combinations with the verb get. It also examines Early Modern English
regional dialect vocabulary. Part II (Diatopic Studies) is concerned with
the analysis of several morphological and phonological features in
different varieties of English, namely Standard English, Modern Scottish
English, Galwegian English, and Black South-African English. Part III
(Contrastive Studies) contains four chapters dealing with the contrastive
analysis of a number of morphosyntactic features, such as the use of
modifiers of adjectives by advanced learners of English, the acquisition
and use of aspect by advanced EFL learners with different mother-tongue
backgrounds, a comparison of the tempo-aspectual categories of English and
Italian, and some of the problems encountered by researchers when compiling
and analysing learner corpora of spoken language.
