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'
This work attempts a principled and coherent account of the Aristotelian sentence within modern generative grammar. Predication is understood as a licensing relation, and a category-neutral theory of predication is proposed, with consequences for two domains of grammar: 'inside' and 'outside' the predicate.
