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'
With its 60 articles on some 200 terms, the dictionary provides a description of the individual concepts in which 17th and 18th century thinking on language was represented in texts. Account is taken not only of the synchronic perspective and the continuation of tradition, but also of the epochal dynamics which made it possible for 17th and 18th century thinking on language to provide possible conceptualisations for succeeding ages.
