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'

Title: Mesopotamian Poetic Language: Sumerian and Akkadian
Subtitle: Proceedings of the Groningen Group for the Study of Mesopotamian Literature, Volume 2
Edited By: H.L.J. Vanstiphout
M.E. Vogelzang
URL: http://www.brill.nl/default.aspx?partid=10&pid=10161
Series Title: Cuneiform Monographs
Description:

This collection of articles is the result of the second meeting of the
Mesopotamian Literature Group (Groningen), held in Groningen from 12 till
14 July 1993. The topics treated by these scholars from six countries range
from theoretical issues to specific analyses, from broad structures to
linguistic textures, including metaphorical language as well as phonic
features; also, various poetical techniques and strategies are studied. The
interest is more in the questions that are raised than in the answers
given, and the matter of legitimization of our theoretical bases runs
throughout most contributions, this being the aim of the Group.
