Collocation is an important tool in describing lexical behaviour in language and has received increasing attention in recent years. Based on two corpora: LOCNESS (the Louvain Corpus of Native English Essays) and MLC (the Non-English major Mainland Chinese Learner Corpus), this book explores the features of Chinese learner English with analysis of grammatical and lexical collocations. The findings show that Chinese university students use collocations with considerably less variety and Chinese language and culture exert a substantial influence on their English writing. It also discusses ways to tackle the problems Chinese English learners face and the pedagogical implications for teaching English and learning English collocations. As one of the first systematic studies to investigate collocations in Chinese learner English based on learner corpora, this book not only analyzes how Chinese learners use collocations in their English writing, but also provides significant implications for foreign language teaching and learning.

Nigeria's political and macroeconomic development is examined to provide better understanding of the intricacies of revenue collection and allocation. The author peruses the constitutional responsibilities of various tiers of government to expose its expenditure profile, which reveals lopsided revenue allocation formulae. He proceeds to examine the various ways in which Nigeria may allocate revenue more equitably, which he considers key to the project of attaining stable democracy after decades of military rule.


Dislocations In Solids

New models for dislocation structure and motion are presented for nanocrystals, nucleation at grain boundaries, shocked crystals, interphase interfaces, quasicrystals, complex structures with non-planar dislocation cores, and colloidal crystals. A review of experimentally established main features of the magnetoplastic effect with their physical interpretation explains many diverse results of this type. The model has many potential applications for forming processes influenced by magnetic fields.
- Dislocation model for the magnetoplastic effect
- New mechanism for dislocation nucleation and motion in nanocrystals
- New models for the dislocation structure of interfaces between crystals with differing crystallographic structure
- A unified view of dislocations in quasicrystals, with a new model for dislocation motion
- A general model of dislocation behavior in crystals with non-planar dislocation cores
- Dislocation properties at high velocities
- Dislocations in colloidal crystals
