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 aims to find out whether French, one of the great languages of the world, is in crisis or not. It traces the history and development of language defence in France and examines the sometimes contradictory attitudes of French people to their beloved language. It assesses the necessity for and the usefulness of the many activities in defence of French and suggests what its future might be.
