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: Academic Discourse Across Disciplines
Edited By: Ken Hyland
Marina Bondi
URL: http://www.peterlang.com/Index.cfm?vLang=E&vSiteID=4&vSiteName=BookDetail%2Ecfm&VID=11183
Series Title: Linguistic Insights. Studies in Language and Communication. Vol. 42
Description:

This volume reflects the emerging interest in cross-disciplinary variation in
both spoken and written academic English, exploring the conventions and
modes of persuasion characteristic of different disciplines and which help
define academic inquiry. This collection brings together chapters by applied
linguists and EAP practitioners from seven different countries. The authors
draw on various specialised spoken and written corpora to illustrate the
notion of variation and to explore the concept of discipline and the different
methodologies they use to investigate these corpora. The book also seeks
to make explicit the valuable links that can be made between research into
academic speech and writing as text, as process, and as social practice.
