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

Description:

This book brings together scholars who have been working on agreement
restrictions within the generative framework. The articles range from
syntactic to morphological approaches, investigating different domains of
agreement restrictions, such as the Person Case Constraint, nominative
objects, and Quirky Case Restrictions in a series of European and
Non-European languages, providing new data and novel analyses for both, new
and well-known facts. This book collects different and relevant studies in
this field and gives a general overview of the different theoretical
approaches concerned with the morphological, syntactic and semantic
properties of agreement restriction phenomena.
