Mukherjee, Joybrato and Tobias Bernaisch 2015 Cultural keywords in context: A pilot study of linguistic acculturation in South Asian EnglishesGrammatical Change in English World-Wide, Collins, Peter (ed.), pp. 411–436 | Article
The present study focuses on lexicogrammatical routines of South Asian Englishes that are associated with so-called ‘cultural keywords’. These routines are particularly significant manifestations of the overarching process of the linguistic acculturation of the English language in new postcolonial… read more
Bernaisch, Tobias, Stefan Th. Gries and Joybrato Mukherjee 2014 The dative alternation in South Asian English(es): Modelling predictors and predicting prototypesEnglish World-Wide 35:1, pp. 7–31 | Article
The present paper focuses on the modelling of cross-varietal differences and similarities in South Asian English(es) and British English at the level of verb complementation. Specifically, we analyse the dative alternation with GIVE, i.e. the alternation between the double-object construction (John… read more
Hundt, Marianne, Sebastian Hoffmann and Joybrato Mukherjee 2012 The hypothetical subjunctive in South Asian Englishes: Local developments in the use of a global constructionEnglish World-Wide 33:2, pp. 147–164 | Article
This paper studies the distribution and usage patterns in hypothetical if-clauses in a set of South Asian Englishes (SAEs), namely Indian, Pakistani, Bangladeshi and Sri Lankan English on the basis of web-derived newspaper data. Comparative evidence comes from newspaper texts in the British… read more
Schilk, Marco, Tobias Bernaisch and Joybrato Mukherjee 2012 Mapping unity and diversity in South Asian English lexicogrammar: Verb-complementational preferences across varietiesMapping Unity and Diversity World-Wide: Corpus-Based Studies of New Englishes, Hundt, Marianne and Ulrike Gut (eds.), pp. 137–166 | Article
It has been noted that the study of the interface between lexis and grammar in general and verb-complementational patterns and preferences in particular offers new insights into distinctive and so far largely neglected structures of varieties of English. Based on data from the International Corpus… read more
Hundt, Marianne and Joybrato Mukherjee 2011 Introduction: Bridging a paradigm gapExploring Second-Language Varieties of English and Learner Englishes: Bridging a paradigm gap, Mukherjee, Joybrato and Marianne Hundt (eds.), pp. 1–6 | Article
Hundt, Marianne and Joybrato Mukherjee 2011 Discussion forum: New Englishes and Learner Englishes – quo vadis?Exploring Second-Language Varieties of English and Learner Englishes: Bridging a paradigm gap, Mukherjee, Joybrato and Marianne Hundt (eds.), pp. 209–218 | Article
During the workshop at the ISLE conference in Freiburg, the participants agreed to engage in an online discussion on how to bridge the paradigm gap in researching ESL varieties and EFL variants of English. The most productive strand of this discussion concerned the modelling of different Englishes,… read more
In our earlier work on three Asian Englishes and British English, we showed how lexico-syntactic co-occurrence preferences for three argument structure constructions revealed differences between varieties that correlated well with Schneider’s (2003, 2007) model of evolutionary stages. Here, we turn… read more
Mukherjee, Joybrato 2010 Corpus linguistics versus corpus dogmatism — pace Wolfgang TeubertThe Bootcamp Discourse and Beyond, Worlock Pope, Caty (ed.), pp. 370–378 | Article
The present paper focuses on aspects of what has been labelled the ‘grammar of conversation’ in the Longman Grammar of Spoken and Written English (1999), i.e. syntactic features that are typical of spontaneous spoken language. Specifically, this paper will present some findings of three case… read more

Indian English: Corpus-based perspectives on structural nativisationExploring the Lexis–Grammar Interface, Römer-Barron, Ute and Rainer Schulze (eds.), pp. 117–135 | Article
The present paper puts into perspective four areas in which new local norms have emerged in the lexicogrammar of Indian English, the largest institutionalised second-language variety of English world-wide: (1) collocations, (2) new prepositional verbs, (3) new ditransitive verbs, and (4)… read more
The present paper investigates the strength of verb-construction associations across various New Englishes on the basis of comparable corpora. In contrast to previous studies into verb complementation in New Englishes, we start off from three basic constructions in English — the intransitive, the… read more

It has been frequently noted that many characteristic features of New Englishes tend to cluster around the interface between lexis and grammar. Focusing on present-day standard Indian English, the largest second-language variety of English, Olavarría de Ersson and Shaw (2003) and Mukherjee and… read more
Mukherjee, Joybrato and Sebastian Hoffmann 2006 Describing verb-complementational profiles of New Englishes: A pilot study of Indian EnglishEnglish World-Wide 27:2, pp. 147–173 | Article
The present paper investigates the emergence of local norms in Indian English at the level of verb complementation, an area which so far has not attracted much attention in research into New Englishes. In attempting to describe the verb-complementational profile of Indian English, we offer a pilot… read more
