The Pluperfect in Native and Non-Native English: A Comparative Corpus Study.
Sharma, Devyani
Language Variation and Change, v13 n3 p343-73 2001
Examines a case of dialectal variation in a subpart of the tense-modality aspect system of Indian English. Focuses on functions associated with an existing form: the use of the pluperfect "had" + V-"ed" construction. Contrasts this usage with that of British and American English. (Author/VWL)
