Relative Clauses in Hong Kong English.
Gisborne, Nikolas
World Englishes, v19 n3 p357-71 2000
Discusses relative clauses in Hong Kong English and considers questions about its morphosyntactic feature system, comparing relevant attestations from local data to those found in other varieties of English. Examines ways relative constructions in Cantonese may affect how relative clauses in Hong Kong English are formed and how the relative clause system in Hong Kong English is independent of the systems of Cantonese and standard native-speaker varieties of English.
