Second-person plural forms in World Englishes: A Corpus-based Study

Abstract

Varieties of English world-wide show that a linguistically explicit difference between singular and plural second person pronouns is still alive and well. A corpus-based research shows how plural second person forms behave linguistically, providing information about frequencies, old and new functions and patterns, as well as suggesting the direction of the grammaticalisation processes that are taking place.
