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

Title: Early Child Cantonese
Subtitle: Facts and Implications
Written By: Shek Kam Tse
Hui Li
URL: http://www.degruyter.com/cont/fb/sk/detailEn.cfm?id=IS-9783110240047-1
Series Title: Studies on Language Acquisition [SOLA] 42
Description:

This book will be the first publication on record that systematically and
comprehensively addresses the acquisition and development of Cantonese in
early childhood. It draws upon evidence from up-to-date reviews of associated
literature, on the outcomes of numerous research studies conducted by the
authors and on the outcomes of an in-depth study of the largest corpus of early
childhood Cantonese. To supplement and illuminate published trends in the
literature, carefully gathered reliable and valid empirical data will be critically
scrutinized. The evidence will be used to clarify and examine theoretical
assumptions and to outline putative developmental trends in early childhood
Cantonese pragmatics.
