This is the first study that empirically investigates preposition placement across all clause types. The study compares first-language (British English) and second-language (Kenyan English) data and will therefore appeal to readers interested in world Englishes. Over 100 authentic corpus examples are discussed in the text, which will appeal to those who want to see 'real data'
The volume explores how a concept of discourse can be usefully applied to the analysis of visual as well as verbal texts. Drawing on case studies from American and British media, it re-examines the relationship between discourse and ideology, demonstrating how both interrelate and contribute to media analysis.
