Preposition Placement in English: A Usage-Based Approach

By Thomas Hoffmann

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'

Title: Anaphoric Demonstratives
Subtitle: Linguistic, cognitive and computational modelling
Edited By: António Branco
Anthony Mark McEnery
Ruslan Mitkov
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=CILT%20263
Series Title: Current Issues in Linguistic Theory 263
Description:

Anaphora processing is a central topic in the study of natural language and
has long been the object of research in a wide range of disciplines. The
correct interpretation of anaphora has also become increasingly important
for real-world natural language processing applications, including machine
translation, automatic abstracting, information extraction and question
answering.

This volume provides a unique overview of the processing of anaphora from a
multi- and inter-disciplinary angle. It will be of interest and practical
use to readers from fields as diverse as theoretical linguistics, corpus
linguistics, computational linguistics, computer science, natural language
processing, artificial intelligence, human language technology,
psycholinguistics, cognitive science and translation studies.

The readership includes but is not limited to university lecturers,
researchers, postgraduate and senior undergraduate students.
