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'
The contributors to this book explore their findings on language acquisition in a variety of the world's languages, reflecting the diversity of interests in the field and the range of languages being studies. This volume makes an empirical, as well as a theoretical, contribution to linguistic research.
