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

Title: A Dynamic Approach to Second Language Development

Series Title: Language Learning & Language Teaching 29
Description:

Dynamic systems theory, a general theory of change and development, offers a
new way to study first and second language development and requires a new
set of tools for analysis of empirical data. After a brief introduction to the theory,
this book, co-authored by several leading scholars in the field, concentrates on
tools and techniques recently developed to analyze language data from a
dynamic perspective. The chapters deal with the general thoughts and reasoning
behind coding data, analyzing variability, discovering interacting variables and
modeling. The accompanying How to sections give step-by-step
instructions to using macros to speed up the coding, creating a dedicated lexical
profile, making min-max graphs, testing for significance in single case studies
by running simulations, and modeling. Example files and data sets are available
on the accompanying website. Although the focus is on second language
development, the tools are applicable to a wide range of phenomena in applied
linguistics.
