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: Third Language Learners
Subtitle: Pragmatic Production and Awareness
Written By: Maria Pilar Safont Jordà
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/multi/display.asp?isb=185359802X
Series Title: Second Language Acquisition
Description:

The book aims to provide a bridge between two applied linguistics
subfields, namely those of interlanguage pragmatics and third language
acquisition. It examines the production and identification of request acts
formulas on the part of bilingual learners of English in the Valencian
Community (Spain). Previous to the empirical study itself, we present an
overview of the theoretical background and the sociolinguistic context
where the experiment was conducted.
