Strathy Student Working Papers on Canadian English

Strathy Student Working Papers on Canadian English features papers that address the structure or usage of the English language in Canada, broadly defined. This includes articles on grammatical analysis, second language acquisition, sociolinguistics, corpus linguistics, historical research, lexicography and discourse analysis. The “Canadian English” under investigation may be any variety of English spoken in any region of the country, by native or non-native speakers. English may be the sole language of analysis or may be examined within the context of other languages.

This new digital journal is hosted on QSpace. It replaces our previous series which featured papers only by undergraduates at Queen's University.
