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

Title: New Approaches to Slavic Verbs of Motion
Edited By: Victoria Hasko
Renee Perelmutter
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=SLCS%20115
Series Title: Studies in Language Companion Series 115
Description:

This volume unifies a wide breadth of interdisciplinary studies examining
the expression of motion in Slavic languages. The contributors to the
volume have joined in the discussion of Slavic motion talk from diachronic,
typological, comparative, cognitive, and acquisitional perspectives with a
particular focus on verbs of motion, the nuclei of the lexicalization
patterns for encoding motion. Motion verbs are notorious among Slavic
linguists for their baffling idiosyncratic behavior in their lexical,
semantic, syntactical, and aspectual characteristics. The collaborative
effort of this volume is aimed both at highlighting and accounting for the
unique properties of Slavic verbs of motion and at situating Slavic
languages within the larger framework of typological research investigating
cross-linguistic encoding of the motion domain. Due to the multiplicity of
approaches to the linguistic analysis the collection offers, it will
suitably complement courses and programs of study focusing on Slavic
linguistics as well as typology, diachronic and comparative linguistics,
semantics, and second language acquisition.
