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 book traces the historical and structural developments behind the uniquely rich vocabulary of English. At the core are a set of several hundred vocabulary elements that English got from Latin and Greek. The book explains how these elements are found in words and how they have evolved over time.
