The study compares first-language (British English) and second-language (Kenyan English) data and will therefore appeal to readers interested in world Englishes. Over 100 authentic corpus examples are discussed in the text, which will appeal to those who want to see 'real data'
Equipping students with the necessary tools for an excellent command of the subject, this book explores a range of topics, including language attitudes, gender and social dialects. Exercises help readers to critically engage with the text.
