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.

Title: Annual Review of South Asian Languages and Linguistics
Subtitle: 2007
URL: http://www.degruyter.de/cont/fb/sp/detailEn.cfm?id=IS-9783110195835-1
Series Title: Trends in Linguistics. Studies and Monographs [TiLSM] 190
Description:

South Asia is home to a large number of languages and dialects. Although
linguists working on this region have made significant contributions to our
understanding of language, society, and language in society on a global
scale, there is as yet no recognized international forum for the exchange
of ideas amongst linguists working on South Asia.

The Annual Review of South Asian Languages and Linguistics is designed to
be just that forum. It brings together empirical and theoretical research
and serves as a testing ground for the articulation of new ideas and
approaches which may be grounded in a study of South Asian languages but
which have universal applicability.

Each volume will have four major sections:
I. Invited contributions consisting of state-of-the-art essays on research
in South Asian languages.
II. Refereed open submissions focusing on relevant issues and providing
various viewpoints.
III. Reports from around the world, book reviews and abstracts of doctoral
theses.
