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'
Sexualities are perceived, constructed and represented in different ways in various languages and cultures. This collection addresses how people use various linguistic features to construct their sexual identities and relationships and how membership of specific social groups, based on sexual and lifestyle choices, may be signalled through language. The new research presented in the chapters focuses on cross-cultural contexts and is situated within a discussion of current trends and theories in relation to language and sexuality.
