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

Title: Determiners
Subtitle: Universals and variation
Edited By: Jila Ghomeshi

Series Title: Linguistik Aktuell/Linguistics Today 147
Description:

This volume brings together recent work on the formal and interpretational
properties of determiners across a variety of typologically and
geographically unrelated languages. It seeks to answer the core question of
modern linguistic theory: Which properties of languages are universal and
which are variable? In recent theorizing, much of language variation is
argued to stem from differences in the properties of features associated
with functional heads. As such, this volume can be viewed as a case study
of one such category: the determiner (D). The contributions all investigate
the status of D as a language universal by examining the language-specific
syntactic and semantic properties associated with this category. This
volume will appeal to researchers and students in syntax and semantics, as
well as to those who have more a specific interest in determiners and noun
phrases.
