The study compares first-language (British English) and second-language (Kenyan English) data and will therefore appeal to readers interested in world Englishes.

This book is the first to provide an integrated view of preposition from

importance of prepositions in a number of computational linguistics
applications, such as information retrieval and machine translation. The

researchers working in the fields of computational linguistics,
linguistics, and artificial intelligence.
