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

Title: New Perspectives On Argument Structure In Functional Grammar
Edited By: María Jesús Pérez Quintero
Ricardo Mairal Usón
URL: http://www.degruyter.com
Series Title: Functional Grammar Series 25
Description:

Within the framework of Functional Grammar, the present monograph tackles one of the most pervasive issues in linguistic theory today, i.e. that of the representation of argument structure. Since the inception of Functional Grammar in 1978, argument representations configured as predicate frames have remained almost totally unchallenged. The book devotes extensive attention to new themes that will spawn future research in the lexical semantics of Functional
Grammar. It will thus be of interest to theoretical and computational linguists interested in lexical semantics and Functional Grammar, as well as to cognitive scientists and lexicographers.
