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'

Series Title: Current Issues in Linguistic Theory 291
Description:

The conference series Going Romance is the major European discussion forum
for theoretically relevant research on Romance languages, where ideas about
language and linguistics and about Romance languages are put in an
interactive perspective, giving space to both universality and
Romance-internal variation. The current volume features a selection of 18
articles (out of 28) that were presented during the 19th meeting at Utrecht
University, December 8-10, 2005. Included in this volume are four papers
that were presented by invited speakers: Belletti, Delais-Roussarie &
Rialland, Notley & Van der Linden & Hulk, and Ordóñez; these reflect both
issues discussed in the general session as well as themes of the workshop
on acquisition. A number of reknown Romance linguists (Saltarelli, di
Sciullo, Zubizarreta) also contributed to the volume. In general,
contributions bear on a variety of topics in the field of morphology,
syntax, semantics and pragmatics and include the perspective from acquisition.
