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

This methodologically and thematically innovative linguistic and cultural-historical study examines interpersonal social relationships during the Early New High German era. The work focuses on activities of linguistic exclusion along with the underlying pragma-grammatical and pragmasemantic strategies associated with them, as well as their impact on ten important marginal groups of the period (beggars, Jews, gypsies, and others). The study is geared to readers from all fields with an interest in history.
