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: Speaking, Reading and Writing with Language Learning Disabilities
Subtitle: New Paradigms in Research and Practice
Edited By: Katherine G. Butler
Elaine R Silliman
Description:

The book is a collection of papers dealing with classroom teaching to children with language learning disabilities, and it is thus intended to serve as a support for (American) primary school teachers. The book is divided into three main parts, the first one (chapters 1-5) dealing with "perspectives on language, literacy, and diversity". Chapter 2 provides an interesting review of the ongoing research on reading and reading problems, from both neuroscience and educational perspectives. Chapter 3 addresses the Language Basis of Reading, dealing with the processes involved in word recognition and comprehension. Chapter 4 applies concepts such as critical literacy and dynamic literacy to the study of possible intervention on children with dyslexia, language learning disabilities, and attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder. Chapter 5 examines the role of language variation in the context of those African-American children with reading disabilities.

The second part of the book (chapters 6-12) addresses more closely the strategies for classroom teaching. The third part of the book focuses on legal and policy issues in special education and postsecondary education.
