Corpus Approaches into World Englishes and Language Contrasts

The twentieth volume of the Varieng eSeries is published.

The 20th volume of the Studies in Variation, Contacts and Change in English eSeries, titled Corpus Approaches into World Englishes and Language Contrasts, has been published. Edited by Hanna Parviainen, Mark Kaunisto and Päivi Pahta, the volume brings together studies exploring various features in World Englishes, learner Englishes and language contact situations, and the structural elements under investigation range from verb complementation and noun complexity issues to linguistic innovations. Some of the chapters are more theoretical in nature, introducing methodologies which can be employed to reveal new dimensions of existing data, while others present innovative solutions to some of the challenges faced by contemporary corpus linguists by presenting new methods on how to compile and present data gathered from online sources.
