Abstract:

This anthology brings together fresh corpus-based research by international
scholars. It contrasts southern and northern hemisphere usage on variable
elements of morphology and syntax. The nineteen invited papers include
topics such as irregular verb parts, pronouns, modal and quasimodal verbs,
the perfect tense, the progressive aspect, and mandative subjunctives.
Lexicogrammatical elements are discussed: light verbs (e.g. 'have a look'),
informal quantifiers (e.g. 'heaps of'), 'no'-collocations, concord with
'government' and other group nouns, alternative verb complementation (as
with 'help, prevent'), zero complementizers and connective adverbs (e.g.
'however'). Selected information-structuring devices are analyzed, e.g.
'there is/are, like as a discourse marker, final but' as a turn-taking
device, and swearwords. Australian and New Zealand use of hypocoristics and
changes in gendered expressions are also analyzed. The two varieties
pattern together in some cases, in others they diverge: Australian English
is usually more committed to colloquial variants in speech and writing. The
book demonstrates linguistic endonormativity in these two southern
hemisphere Englishes.
