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

Title: Insights into Non-native Vocabulary Teaching and Learning
Edited By: Rubrén Chacón-Beltrán
Christián Abello-Contesse
María del Mar Torreblanca-López
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?isb=9781847692887
Series Title: Second Language Acquisition
Description:

In a field like L2 vocabulary teaching and learning where interest and research
studies are burgeoning, this book offers a useful collection of papers that
contains new ways of investigating vocabulary development, techniques for
vocabulary teaching such as the Focus on Form hypothesis, word associations,
and the use of concordance data. In addition, it tackles recent areas of analysis
such as the treatment of vocabulary in teaching materials-an area of almost
complete neglect in the literature. The book is divided into three parts. Part one
provides the overview and deals with the development of a model for vocabulary
teaching and learning. Part two focuses on empirical studies on lexical
processing in English and Spanish. Part three centers on materials design for
vocabulary teaching and learning. The advances made in this book will certainly
be of interest to researchers, teachers, and graduate students working on this
very active field of inquiry.
