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

Title: The Complementizer Phase
Subtitle: Subjects and Operators
Written By: Phoevos E. Panagiotidis
URL: http://ukcatalogue.oup.com/product/9780199584369.do
Series Title: Oxford Studies in Theoretical Linguistics
Description:

This book draws together nine original investigations by leading linguists
and promising young scholars on the syntax of complementizers (eg that in
She said that she would) and their phrases. The chapters are divided into
two parts, each of which highlights aspects of the behaviour and function
of complementisers. The first part looks at how and when subjects, or parts
of subjects, can and cannot move outside their canonical position in a
sentence. Each chapter examines and compares the relevance of a number of
syntactic factors in languages such as English, Italian, Spanish, Greek,
Brazilian Portuguese and Bavarian. In the second part, the focus turns to
the nature and function of complementisers themselves, with discussions
drawing on evidence from Italian, Italian dialects, Hebrew, and Dutch.
