Abstract [en]

This corpus study discusses the subjunctive construction in mandative sentences in East

African and Indian English. Data taken from the East African ICE-EA corpus and the Indian

Kolhapur corpus are compared to previous studies about American English and British

English, mainly by Hundt (1998) and Johansson & Norheim (1988). Subjunctive, indicative

and modal periphrastic constructions are identified and examined.

The conclusion of this study is that the subjunctive construction in mandative sentences is

more common in Indian and East African English than in British English.
