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'
Case Study Research in Applied Linguistics is an introductory book on research in the field of second language acquisition. Many of the current research methodology textbooks cover case study research, but none handle the topic or process in depth. The book is intended for undergraduate and graduate students and other researchers wanting to learn more about case study methods and their application to research on language learning.
