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

Title: Corpus Linguistics and Variation in English
Subtitle: Focus on Non-Native Englishes
Edited By: Magnus Huber
Joybrato Mukherjee
URL: http://www.helsinki.fi/varieng/journal/volumes/13/
Series Title: Studies in Variation, Contacts and Change in English 13
Description:

A selection of the papers at the 31st annual conference of the International Computer Archive of Modern and Medieval English (ICAME), this volume includes 13 papers that represent the strong interest at ICAME 31 in Outer Circle varieties of English and learner Englishes. The papers are theoretical as well as descriptive in orientation and provide a significant contribution to corpus linguistics and research into non-native Englishes from a variationist perspective. The papers address three main themes: (1) The first six papers in the volume investigate different varieties of English, from English as a Native Language, over English as a Second Language to English as an International Language. (2) The following four contributions examine English as a Foreign Language in the workspace and the learning environment. (3) The last three articles focus on translation corpora. Contributions by: * Georg Maier * Andrea Sand * Tobias Bernaisch * Stephanie Hackert, Dagmar Deuber, Carolin Biewer & Michaela Hilbert * Gerold Schneider & Lena Zipp * Ruth Osimk-Teasdale * Federico Gaspari * Nikoletta Rapti * Stefanie Dose * Sandra Götz * Anne-Line Graedler * Signe Oksefjell Ebeling * Thomas Egan
