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'
This volume presents an up-to-date account of current trends in intensional logic. Consisting of nine original research papers preceded by a survey of recent developments, the volume highlights recent advances in a number of interdisciplinary areas, including traditional philosophical concerns about correct descriptions and abstract objects; the use of intensional languages as descriptive tools for finite graphs; proof-theoretical considerations; general strategies of `modalizing' calculi usually perceived to be non-modal; and mathematical foundations of intensional logics.
