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'
The study of native language influence in Second Language Acquisition has undergone significant changes over the past few decades. This volume traces the conceptual history of language transfer from its early role within a Contrastive Analysis framework to its current position within Universal Grammar. For the present book the 1983 edition has been thoroughly revised, and some papers have been replaced, some added.
