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 12 papers in this volume were selected from those presented at the 1999 Conference on the L1 & L2 Acquisition of Spanish and Portuguese held at Georgetown University in October 1999. The papers are divided into sections on bilingualism, reading, writing, phonology, and morphosyntax. The book includes an introduction by the volume editors, and shows a range of current research being conducted in Spanish applied linguistics.
