The study compares first-language (British English) and second-language (Kenyan English) data and will therefore appeal to readers interested in world Englishes.

Title: Becoming Eloquent

Description:

Few topics of scientific enquiry have attracted more attention in the last
decade than the origin and evolution of language. Few have offered an
equivalent intellectual challenge for interdisciplinary collaborations
between linguistics, cognitive science, prehistoric archaeology,
palaeoanthropology, genetics, neurophysiology, computer science and
robotics. The contributions presented in this volume reflect the
multiplicity of interests and research strategy used to tackle this complex
issue, summarize new relevant data and emerging theories, provide an
updated view of this interdisciplinary venture, and, when possible, seek a
future in this broad field of study.
