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: Lexicography in the Borderland between Knowledge and Non-Knowledge
Subtitle: General Lexicographical Theory with Particular Focus on Learner's Lexicography
Written By: Sven Tarp
URL: http://www.degruyter.de/cont/fb/sp/detailEn.cfm?id=IS-9783484391345-1
Series Title: Lexicographica. Series Maior
Description:

The book contains a state-of-the-art summary of the theoretical discussions
within the field of lexicography during the last decades. On this basis it
presents and argues for a new general theory, called the function theory.
It goes on to develop this theory in one single field, i.e. learners
lexicography where it both formulates the basic elements of a general
theory for learners’ dictionaries as well as a number of specific theories
for special subfields such as selection, meaning, semantic relations,
morphology, syntactic properties and word combinations. It contains a big
number of examples extracted from existing dictionaries which are discussed
from the point of view of the theories formulated.
