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: Disinventing & Reconstituting Languages
Edited By: Sinfree Makoni
Alastair Pennycook
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/multi/display.asp?isb=1853599239
Series Title: Bilingual education & Bilingualism
Description:

This book questions assumptions about the nature of language. Looking at
diverse contexts from sign languages in Indonesia to literacy practices in
Brazil, the authors argue that unless we change and reconstitute the ways
in which languages are taught and conceptualized, language studies will not
be able to improve the social welfare of language users.
