LLBA database

  • To find background information on the Englishes of your chosen/assigned region, you can use the database LLBA (Linguistics and Language Behavior Abstracts).
  • Search this database by keyword; use quotes to search for terms occurring together (e.g. "australian english").
  • Note that LLBA can be used to search for articles within specific journals. Under Advanced Search, enter the title of the journal (e.g. "world englishes") in the PUB field. Then enter your keywords and/or phrase (e.g. "australian english" history) in the second search box.
  • Use the IU-Link to access the online text of the articles where this is available.
