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

Edited By: Yukio Tono
Yuji Kawaguchi
Makoto Minegishi

Series Title: Tokyo University of Foreign Studies 4
Description:

This volume provides a state-of-the-art overview of current research and
developments on the use of learner corpora perceived from developmental
and crosslinguistic perspectives. The book is divided into two parts. The
eleven contributions of Part I investigate the development of English
language skills of young learners across seven countries/regions on the basis
of a new corpus resource called the International Corpus of Crosslinguistic
Interlanguage (ICCI).

Part II contains seven papers devoted to other varieties of learner corpora,
especially spoken learner corpora and learner corpora of languages other than
English. Presenting original research in corpus linguistics, this book will be of
interest to researchers and postgraduates in the fields of learner corpus
research and second language acquisition and those who wish to apply
corpus methodology in teaching and learning.
