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'
This is a bibliography of all significant work charting the importation of English into European languages. The book is divided by language, with each entry accompanied by a critical description of its contents. This will be an indispensible research machine for scholars and others interested in this fascinating aspect of recent linguistic change.
