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: Situated Communication
Edited By: Gert Rickheit
Ipke Wachsmuth
URL: http://www.degruyter.de/rs/bookSingle.cfm?id=IS-311018897X-1&l=E
Series Title: Trends in Linguistics. Studies and Monographs 166
Description:

This volume presents important results of the Collaborative Research Center
(Sonderforschungsbereich) "Situated Artificial Communicators," which was
funded by grants from the German Research Foundation (Deutsche
Forschungsgemeinschaft) for more than twelve years.

The contributions focus on different aspects of human-human and
human-machine interaction in situations which closely model everyday
workplace demands. The authors are linguists, psycho- und neurolinguists,
psychologists and computer scientists at Bielefeld University. They jointly
tackle questions of information processing in task-oriented communication.
The role of key notions such as context, integration (of multimodal
information), reference, coherence, and robustness is explored in great depth.

Some remarkable findings and recurrent phenomena reveal that communication
is, to a large extent, a matter of joint activity. The interdisciplinary
approach integrates theory, description and experimentation with simulation
and evaluation.
