Title: Structural Nativization in Indian English Lexicogrammar
URL: http://benjamins.com/catalog/scl.46
Series Title: Studies in Corpus Linguistics 46
Description:

This book contains the first in-depth corpus-based description of structural
nativization at the lexis-grammar interface in Indian English, the largest
institutionalized second-language variety of English world-wide. For a set of
three ditransitive verbs "give", "send" and "offer" - collocational
patterns, verb-complementational preferences and correlations between
collocational and verb-complementational routines are described. The present
study is based on the comparison of the Indian and the British components of
the International Corpus of English as well as a 100-million-word web-derived
corpus of acrolectal Indian newspaper language and corresponding parts of the
British National Corpus. The present corpus-based ‘thick description’ of
lexicogrammatical routines provides new perspectives on the emergence of new
routines and patternings in Indian English and is conceptually and
methodologically relevant for research into varieties of English worldwide.
