Title: Grammaticalization and English Complex Prepositions
Subtitle: A Corpus-Based Study
Written By: Sebastian Hoffmann
Series Title: Routledge Advances in Corpus Linguistics
Description:

What is a grammatical unit? How does grammatical structure evolve? How can
we best investigate the mental representation of grammar? What is the
connection between language use and language structure? This book aims to
help answer such questions by presenting a detailed analysis of English
complex prepositions (e.g. in spite of or with respect to) on the basis of
large amounts of authentic language data dating from the Middle Ages until
today.
