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: Linguistic Variation Yearbook 2005
Edited By: Pierre Pica
Johan E.C.V. Rooryck
Jeroen van Craenenbroeck
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=LIVY%205
Series Title: Linguistic Variation Yearbook 5
Description:

The Linguistic Variation Yearbook is exclusively devoted to the study of
the nature and scope of linguistic variation from the point of view of the
minimalist program. In this perspective, the yearbook aims at going beyond
the traditional tension between explanatory and descriptive adequacy. It
seeks in particular to investigate to what extent the study of linguistic
variation can shed light on the broader issue of language particular vs.
language universal properties and design.
The Linguistic Variation Yearbook publishes annually a collection of
(invited) articles on a theme that is current in and important to the
research on linguistic variation within the generative framework. The focus
is on comparative studies, such as research on typology and dialect variation.
