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'

Series Title: Corpus and Discourse
Description:

Corpus linguistics is often regarded as a methodology in its own right, but
little attention has been given to the theoretical perspectives from which
the subject can be approached. The present book contributes to filling this
gap. Bringing together original contributions by internationally renowned
authors, the chapters include coverage of the lexical priming theory,
parole-linguistics, a four-part model of language system and language use,
and the concept of local textual functions. The theoretical arguments are
illustrated and complemented by case studies using data from large corpora
such as the BNC, smaller purpose-built corpora, and Google searches.

By presenting theoretical positions in corpus linguistics, 'Text,
Discourse, and Corpora' provides an essential overview for advanced
undergraduate, postgraduate and academic readers.

'An outstanding book, containing a range of original research ideas and
insights that push cogently and systematically at the boundaries of the
subject.'
-Professor Ronald Carter, School of English Studies, University of
Nottingham, UK
