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'
In the short time since its first publication, this book has already gone a long way towards establishing itself as the standard text in the field. This new and revised edition takes account of suggestions and comments from reviewers and from those who have used the book all over the world.
