Title: Mapping Unity and Diversity World-Wide
Subtitle: Corpus-Based Studies of New Englishes
Edited By: Marianne Hundt
Ulrike Gut
URL: http://benjamins.com/catalog/veaw.g43
Series Title: Varieties of English Around the World G43
Description:

This volume presents a collection of in-depth cross-varietal studies on a broad
spectrum of grammatical features in English varieties spoken all over the world.
The contributions explore the structural unity and diversity of New Englishes
and thus investigate central aspects of dialect evolution and language change.
Moreover, this volume offers new insights into the question as to what
constrains new dialect formation, and examines universal trends across a wide
range of contact situations. The contributions in this volume further study the
possibilities and limitations of quantitative and qualitative corpus analyses in
comparative studies of New Englishes and exemplify novel approaches, e.g. the
contribution of syntactic corpus annotation (tagging and parsing) to the
description of New English structures; the use (and limitations) of web-derived
data as an additional source of information; and the possibility to complement
corpus data with evidence from sociolinguistic fieldwork.
