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'

Title: The Languages of Global Hip Hop
Edited By: Marina Terkourafi
URL: http://www.continuumbooks.com/books/detail.aspx?BookId=133372&SearchType=Basic
Series Title: Advances in Sociolinguistics
Description:

"This book is a feast not just for hip hop specialists but for all those
interested in the interfaces between music, language and society. The
chapters illustrate the diversity of contexts where this music is enjoyed,
but also the common features found in the hip hop production of various
cultures... Thanks to the range of materials studied (Norway, Egypt,
Cyprus, South Korea and more) and the detail provided in the individual
analyses, the book represents a key contribution to work in this
fascinating field, and will be essential reading for future research."

Abdelali Bentahila and Eirlys Davies, Abdelmalek Essaadi University,
Tangier, Morocco
